Bering Sea
Greenpeace, in a collaboration involving UC Santa Barbara and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), surveyed the sea floor in the enormous and virtually unexplored Bering Sea Canyons using DeepWorker submersibles, small single-pilot submarines equipped with high-definition video cameras, powerful lights, indexing lasers, and robotic sampling arms that allowed scientists to document the rich habitat and marine live thriving in the canyon depths. The expedition documented abundant corals in the world’s largest underwater canyons in Alaska’s Bering Sea, and demonstrated their use as a habitat by fish.
