Dive 4848 - The images collected on this dive will later be split into their blue, green and red channels to look at how well the camouflage of these animals is tuned to vision and light in the blue. If the animals are more cryptic in the blue than in the red, we know that some level of adaptation to the light environment is going on.
Morning sub dive on lophelia site. First dropped to bottom and then searched pinger. This turned out to be quite difficult and took about an hour. After that we deployed the shrimp traps at the pinger site and went off to do imaging. We imaged a number of mobile and sessile animals under white light. After doing this for about an hour, we found and recovered the eye in the sea and returned to the surface. *
To look into the ocean with new eyes, in order to provide a comprehensive characterization of the deep-sea benthic environment.Objectives:1. Continue unobtrusive observations with the Eye-in-the-Sea Camera2. Continue studies of ecological roles of fluorescence in marine organisms.3. Quantify the deep-sea environment as it is perceived by its inhabitants.4. Determine the role of polarized light receiption in the pelagic environment.5. Determine the extent of polarized light reception in deep-sea organisms.6. Determine adaptations in deep-sea benthic organisms for increased sensitivity to light.
