Voyage to the White Shark Café

The Mariana region is home to the Mariana subduction system. This November, scientists shed light on the Mariana back-arc spreading center looking for new sites of hydrothermal activity.

Underwater Fire: Studying the Submarine Volcanoes of Tonga

Aboard R/V Falkor, Dr. Ken Rubin and his research team will visit one of the most active underwater volcano sites in the world, the Meta Volcano group. There they will work to obtain a detailed geological understanding of up to 12 different submarine volcanoes, attempting to do this across a suite of volcanos for the very first time.

Microplastics of the Alaskan Gulf

R/V Falkor travels from Oregon up to the Alaskan Gulf on an expedition to better characterize organisms in the Abyssal Plain region and determine the extent microplastics can be found in these deep systems.

Sea to Space Particle Investigation

A Changing River: Measuring Nutrient fluxes to the South China Sea

If you have ever flown over a coastal area and observed a river meeting the ocean, chances are you have had the opportunity to see a river plume. The patch of distinctly colored water demonstrates the clear continuity of the river flow as it enters the ocean. From this visual, it becomes obvious that rivers … Continued

Leg Two, Open Ocean to Inner Sea

The expedition’s second leg focused on gathering video records of the life found in and around lower-oxygen zones using the ROV ROPOS.

Leg One, Open Ocean to Inner Sea

During the first leg of the Open Ocean to Inner Sea expedition, the Canadian research team collected basic oxygen and other measurements offshore of Vancouver Island.
