​Hiding beneath the sea surface of the Galapagos Marine Reserve lie hundreds of underwater volcanic structures known as seamounts. They are too deep to study by scuba diving, so little is known about their habitats. This November 2018 scientists will be use a remotely operated vehicle to explore several uncharted seamounts. Will these structures be biodiversity hotspots or barren moonscapes? Will we find undescribed reef ecosystems? Discover new fish communities or identify critters never seen before? Follow along to find out!
