ASHES Vent Field: The ROPOS/RSN Interface box was installed on ROPOS to test the high definition camera in the ASHES hydrothermal field - the camera was installed last year. The test was highly successful and video was streamed live and archived. The Applied Physics Lab was online via the live feed and VOIP phones for the test. Video looked great. At the end of the dive, the "Welch frame" was recovered. Video Credit: NSF-OOI/UW/CSSF; Dive R1731; V14 (01:19)
