Research Cruise BMCC 2018

From September 27th to October 6th, 2018, NOAA and partners at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a research expedition on the TDI Brooks-operated R/V Brooks McCall to collect critical baseline information about deepwater habitats offshore the U.S. Mid- and South Atlantic. This expedition was unfortunatly shortened due to Hurricane Florence but the team was still able to conduct a number of CTD casts, deploy two benthic landers, and collect piston cores.
