Fishing for #yellyfish with the isaacs kit net on board of #researchvessel #pelagia #nioz #texel #searesearch #nicoexpedition #northsea
Last cast on the Triple D dregde we accidentally ended up in a rock field .
The catch off 4 metric tons of rocks ruined our net !
Scientists Rob Witbaard #nioz and Elsa Duijm #naturalis measuring the biological catch off #shells while the crew fixes the dredge. Oldest quahog found was measured had an age of 507 years !!! #noordkromp #Quahog #arcticaislandica #oldshell #researchvessel #pelagia #texel #northsea #nicoexpedition #nicoexpeditie #searesearch
And… we’re back.

If you were wondering where we’ve been, here is your answer. The Petrel is receiving many upgrades and a fresh coat of blue paint during her routine dry dock period.
.
There are quite a few photos and videos from recent finds we have yet to put on Instagram. We hope to do some catchup in the coming days.
.
Thank you for your patience.

Greenpeace est en expédition scientifique avec son bateau L'Esperanza @greenpeaceships au large de la Guyane. Objectif : vérifier si le récif de l'Amazone, découvert au Brésil, s'étend aussi dans les eaux guyanaises.

This is the first ever photos of the newly-discovered Amazon Reef. It's a reef ecosystem that has never been observed before, it was only discovered 2 years ago but already under threat from oil drilling... Thanks to @greenpeace scientists and activists amongst others, Total's licence to drill in the reef is rejected for now but the struggle continues ! More than 2 million people have signed the petition to defend the Amazon Reef, be part of that 🌍 💙 🌎

Taking a break from deep wrecks we had some fun looking at this extremely shallow and well known plane wreck in 44 meters of water.⠀

This video is from one of the ROV’s pilot’s cameras that gives a nice fisheye view of the plane.⠀

The image is of low frequency side scan data. It is from initial our wide area search of the sinking location. This is the image that allowed us to find her and send the ROV down for confirmation. The low frequency sonar data covers a 2km wide swath of the seabed for the sake of finding large metal objects and debris fields. .

Often it takes a bit of sleuth work to positively identify shipwrecks. Comparing all the twisted bits of metal to historical photographs is our main method. In the past we have used damage reports from the national archives to pin point shell holes.
.
In this case, the job becomes easier when the name of the ship is written right on the transom.

A throwback Thursday to 2015 when we mapped Iron Bottom Sound off Guadalcanal here in the Solomon Islands.
.
.
These are photos of the wreck of the USS Astoria (CA-34).
.
The Astoria was sunk at the Battle of Savo Island on August 9, 1942 after being bombarded by shells from a force of seven Japanese cruisers during the fight for Guadalcanal.
.
We were here back in 2015 and sonar mapped 970 sq/km (283 sq/nm) in and around Savo Island with our AUV.
.
In the sonar data we found 29 wreck locations, 7 debris field and several possible planes. .
Six of the wrecks were positively identified by inspecting them with the ROV’s camera. They were the USS Astoria, USS Quincy, USS Vincennes, USS Northampton, HMAS Canberra, and the USS Atlanta.
.
Eleven wrecks were tentatively identified in the sonar data as USS Walke, IJN Ayanami, USS Dehaven, IJN Yudachi, IJN Fubuki, USS Laffey, USS Monssen, USS Barton, USS Cushing, USS Little, and the USS Preston. .
.
Photo 1: Sonar image of the Astoria with a photograph for comparison. The bow of the ship broke off and landed just aft of the funnels. The anchor chains still attached to the bow are clearly seen.
.
Photo 2: The ship’s name written on the transom
.
Photo 3: Anti aircraft guns
.
Photo 4: 5” gun
.
Photo 5: Two of the 8” guns. The anchor chain is seen in this photo.
.
Photo 6: Shell hole in the Astoria’s hull

World War II ship USS Juneau discovered on St. Patrick’s Day!
.
.
Our latest find, WWII light cruiser USS Juneau. She was found on 4,200 meters (about 2.6 miles) below the surface, resting on the floor of the South Pacific near the Solomon Islands. .
We certainly didn't plan this, but we located Juneau on St. Patrick’s Day—an unexpected coincidence since she is best known for the Sullivans, 5 Irish-American brothers who were among the 687 sailors lost at sea. Only 10 survived the sinking.

Our 6000 meter depth rated AUV, or underwater survey drone, at dawn right after its latest mission on the USS Juneau.
.
.
Our permanently installed 6000 meter depth rated assets allow us to explore the bottom of most of the world’s oceans. The AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle) is an underwater drone to survey and map wide area swaths of the seafloor with sidescan sonar.
.
Our AUV is capable of reaching 6000 meters, 19,685 feet or 3.73 miles under water.  The average depth of the Pacific Ocean is 4,280 meters.

A bureau number (BuNo) were assigned by the Navy’s Bureau of Aeronautics and written on the tail of aircraft to identify them throughout the life of the plane. It is possible to find the name of the pilot assigned to that aircraft at the time of its loss.

Who can find out who flew these planes?

USS Lexington (CV-2) at the South Boston Navy Yard Annex in early 1928. A Martin T3M torpedo bomber sits near the elevator that was one of the first planes on Lexington.
.
.
Lady Lex was built in Quincy MA at the Fore River shipyard by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corp. She was then floated to South Boston to have her hull painted in dry dock.
.
The Lexington was hauled out at dry dock 3 in Southie, which is still in use today by Northeast Ship Repair, Inc. When the Queen Elizabeth 2 was hauled out there in 1992 when she struck ground off of Martha’s Vineyard.
.
The Lexington is moored in this photo likely around where the the Bank of American Pavilion, the Harpoon Brewery and Legal Seafood’s headquarters are today.
.
Bostonians will recognize the iconic clock tower of the Customs House in the top left. This building is still a prominent eye catcher in the modern day Boston skyline.
.
The top right of the photo is the East Boston waterfront. If the camera was able to pan right Jeffery Field, eventually to become Logan airport, would be visible.

These are a few images to clear up where the Lexington name was on the ship.
.

Image #1: Lexington .
.
Image #2: A zoom in on the port side where the Lexington name would be. The words in image #1 would have been on the opposite side highlighted in this image. This photo is of a newly built ship and shows what may a painted version.  We think that the version we see in the photos of the wreckage was likely made during one of the two refits Lady Lex went through.

The R/V Petrel’s 6000 deep rated remotely operated vehicle (ROV) seen in it’s dedicated hanger.

ROVs are robots with thrusters that operate on a long tether cable allowing a human being to control it from the ship. It is equipped with live HD video cameras it lets us to explore deep depths of the ocean where human beings are unable to go.
.
Our ROV is capable of reaching what is known in the subsea industry as “full ocean depth” or 6000 meters, 19,685 feet or 3.73 miles under water.

These images show the starboard side 20 mm anti aircraft gun emplacements outboard of the exhaust funnel.
.
.
Seen here are notes written by the shipyard in Pearl Harbor during the Lady Lex’s refit in March of 1942 and then painted over. The paint was likely burned off during her sinking.
.
.
What appear to be burn marks are visible on these bulwarks that surrounded the guns.

Seen here are notes written by the shipyard in Pearl Harbor during the Lady Lex’s refit in March of 1942 and then painted over. The paint was likely burned off during her sinking. . . What appear to be burn marks are visible on these bulwarks that surrounded the guns. . . Link in bio for more information on the USS Lexington (CV-2) or check out our Facebook page for updates. .

Our intrepid First Officer Kevin Laurie (@laurie.kevin), and his socks, manning the dynamic positioning desk during ROV operations.
.
.
No Kevin isn’t playing video games on the bridge.
.
.
The old timey ship’s wooden steering wheel of yore has been replaced by a joystick.
.
The dynamic positioning (DP)) system on board is run by computers that control the propellers and various thrusters to let the Petrel to say in position within 10-20 cm.
.
When we are using the ROV the DP system allows us to ask our bridge officers to make small moves measured in meters in any direction to follow it along.
