ROV Dive 401 - Newly Discovered 500m Tall Reef

Join RV Falkor as we conduct ROV SuBastian’s 401st dive on a newly discovered 500 m tall reef. This is the ninth dive of the ‘Northern Depths of the Great Barrier Reef’ expedition. Today we are exploring this 500 m tall ‘detached’ reef, one of seven other detached reefs offshore of Cape York Peninsula, which lie upon a ~500 m deep ledge extending out from below the Great Barrier Reef shelf. The dive will cross the broader base, then climb the steep flanks of the reef to the summit at about 50 m depth - an underwater mountain climb to find out what is living on this newly discovered reef. https://schmidtocean.org/cruise/northern-depths-of-the-great-barrier-reef #EdgeGBR
