To conduct the research at a depth of 1,820 m, the team used a remote submersible, the SuBastian. The team was surprised and enthusiastic about their findings and the wildlife in such extreme depth.
Discussion of the various aspects of the research, Dr. Brendan Brooke, the senior scientist from Earth Sciences Australia, specified:
“This included the most comprehensive midwater robotic dive survey ever conducted in the South Pacific. The research vessel Falkor has integrated a number of technologies that have enabled us to work across the depths of the ocean in the Coral Sea and provide data for various disciplines, including geology, biology and oceanography. “
Among the more unusual Fings on the expedition was a new species of black coral with meter-long tentacles and a Rhinopias agriloba that are normally found in the waters around Hawaii. Scientists hope their research will shed light on habitat and the interaction of seabed features with the animals around them.
