Tonight's speaker was Melissa Baffa, Development Officer and Biologist at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Although the museum wasn't mentioned often, she did speak of an expedition that she was glad to be apart -- Nautilus Live. The expedition engages in scientific exploration of the seafloor. Using a 64 foot vessel and vehicles she called EVs, they could conduct research of the seafloor 72 hours at a time. Not only does the expedition collect data, they broadcast their findings LIVE on the internet for anyone to watch.
The 2018 Nautilus Expedition will launch the fourth year of exploration in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, and will be one of the most extensive seasons to date. From June to November, Nautilus will document and survey unexplored regions from British Columbia, Canada, along the West Coast of the United States, and for the first time, west to the Hawaiian Islands.
