JR224 Cruise Continues

The science cruise continues with some good results being obtained.

On Tuesday 27th January ‘SHRIMP’ was deployed for the first time.  SHRIMP is a camera system that is towed very slowly just above the seabed and is being used to try and locate ‘Black Smokers’,  active volcanic vents.

The picture below was taken at a depth of some 2,700m
