What does this data set describe?

Title:
Coral Research Data from NOAA's Undersea Research Center, Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory, NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP)
Abstract:
NOAA's Undersea Research Center, the Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory, explores and studies the waters around the Main Hawaiian Islands, Northwest Hawaiian Islands (NWHI), and U.S. flag Pacific Islands. It operates two deep diving (6562 ft) submersibles, Pisces IV and V; a 225-ft support vessel, R/V Ka'imikai-o-Kanaloa; a remotely operated vehicle, RCV-150; a multi-beam mapping system; and the largest annotated video archive (~7,000 hrs) in the Pacific. Research focus is on extreme ecosystems, coral habitats, volcanic systems and fisheries.
