Bone and Wood Landers

Location: Oregon and Washington coast, USA

Date: June 2014

Ship: R/V Oceanus

The aim of this 12-day expedition was to recover several deep-water free-vehicle landers deployed in 2013 containing organic substrates (whale bone and wood). This was part of a project investigating how colonisation of these substrates differs with location and depth (1500m vs. 3000m). Additional background sampling was also carried out with a multicorer and CTD rosette.
