Type Period Note:
"Almost 50 days at sea, aboard three NOAA research vessels, were use used this part fiscal year to support our baseline characterization of the Tortugas Ecological Reserve (TER). In TER South, seafloor transect surveys were conducted using divers, remotely operated verhicles... and the Deepworker manned submersible. ARGOS drifter releases, satellite imagery of water mass composition, ichthyoplankton surveys and direct diver census were all combined to elucidate the potential down-current dispersal of fish spawning in this environment."--p.1.
