The DEEP SEARCH program spans five years and aims to explore a variety of ecosystems including deep-sea coral, canyon, and gas seep habitats in U.S. federal waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The first three expeditions ran from September 11-28th, 2017 aboard the Pisces, August 19th – September 2nd, 2018 aboard the R/V Atlantis, and September 27th – August 6th, 2018 aboard the R/V Brooks McCall all with the goals to map, profile the water column, and sample in order to better characterize the U.S. continental margin both geologically and biologically.

We have another cruise coming up in April 2019. Stay tuned!
