Titan, OceanGate’s five-person composites-intensive submersible, set a world deep-sea dive record while preparing for its Titanic Survey Expedition.
USF scientists seek to characterize the concentrations and isotopic ratios of trace metals in the Gulf Stream, a location of some of the fastest ocean currents on the planet.
During this expedition, R/V ANGARI hosted shark researchers from Florida International University (FIU) and Florida Atlantic University (FAU) for a look at the blacktip shark migration along the cost of Palm Beach County, Florida.
R/V ANGARI served as a support vessel for the filming of National Geographic’s SharkFest special, Forecast: Shark Attack, which aired on Thursday, July 18 at 10 PM ET.
FIU scientists worked with citizen scientists to deploy drum lines, tag sharks and collect plankton from aboard R/V ANGARI.
Researchers onboard R/V ANGARI traveled to the Bahamas to assess coral reef health by conducting Atlantic and Gulf Rapid Reef Assessments (AGRRA) at several dive sites near South Abaco and East Grand Bahama, including some new survey sites that have never been explored before. The team completed hundreds of surveys of corals, reef fish, and more.
A group of students and teachers spent the day aboard R/V ANGARI conducting shark research in Palm Beach County alongside scientists from Florida International University.
Scientists aboard R/V ANGARI spent 9 days in the Western Bahamas studying, tagging, and photo-capturing sea turtles for an ongoing study of fibropapillomatosis, as well as gathering new high-speed biting data from nurse, lemon, and bull sharks in order to help better understand shark morphology, biting, and feeding behaviors.
