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.
