Tune in here on Wednesday, June 30! MBARI will be exploring Sur Ridge in NOAA’s Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS), and we’d like you to join us!

Sur Ridge is a deep rocky outcrop off the coast of central California that rises 500 meters (1,640 feet) above the seafloor and supports gardens of deep-sea corals and sponges. Over the past decade, MBARI and MBNMS have partnered to explore and study this remarkable underwater oasis and better understand the growing impacts of climate change on the lush corals and sponges discovered there. Working aboard the R/V Western Flyer, researchers will use a suite of state-of-the-art marine technology, including cameras, high-resolution mapping tools, and the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Doc Ricketts, to learn more about the countless mysteries that exist in the deep sea.
