Notes from the Pacific Expedition — August 26, 2013

Expedition crew members work to deploy the ROV in the waters of Heceta Bank

Heceta Bank

We didn’t know what we might find in the Heceta Bank region off the central Oregon coast.  It is one of the largest reef complexes off the Pacific Northwest coast, once nominated to be a National Marine Sanctuary because of its ecological significance.  There have been a few research dives in the area, but nobody has done underwater surveys in the area we were going to today.
