Loading the player...

This dive, at Southern Hydrate Ridge, resulted in installation of the third extension cable (SUM1W4 - 604 m) for the short-period seismometers that will be installed at this site on follow-on ROPOS dives. The junction box (MJ01B), which had been used as an anchor to install the cables, was moved into position near Einstein's Grotto, and each of the three short-period extension cables was surveyed in.
