Brian Kennedy, PhD student in the Rotjan Lab, led a paper that was recently published in Frontiers of Marine Science. The Unknown and the Unexplored: Insights Into the Pacific Deep-Sea Following NOAA CAPSTONE Expeditions is the culmination of 3 years worth of deep-sea work (187 ROV dives) across the Pacific Ocean. It is the first comprehensive description of the NOAA CAPSTONE campaign (one of the largest ocean exploration efforts the US has ever undertaken), and parses through the initial analyses for Anthozoa, Porifera, and Echinodermata across regions, deep-sea features, and depth.
