The VISIONS ’14 expedition will take place aboard the 274-foot global-class Research Vessel Thomas G. Thompson and will utilize the state-of-the-art underwater robotic vehicle called ROPOS. We will be working at an active submarine volcano and reaching depths of 9000 ft beneath the ocean’s surface.
