ROV Doc Ricketts completes 600th dive
April 30, 2014
Remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Doc Ricketts successfully completed its 600th dive yesterday. Since February 2009, Doc Ricketts has explored the deep sea as far north as the Juan de Fuca Ridge off the Pacific northwest coast and as south as Baja California, Mexico. We congratulate the R/V Western Flyer crew and the ROV pilots for their significant contribution to hundreds of science and engineering missions.
