Canada's R/V Thomas G. Thompson recently set sail on a cruise to maintain, recover, and deploy more instruments at the NEPTUNE seafloor observatory. NEPTUNE is the world’s first multi-node regional cabled seafloor observatory, and McLane Sediment Traps and RAS samplers were deployed in 2009 for Phase One of this 25 year project. Daily cruise updates, cruise blogs and even live streaming video can be viewed at the NEPTUNE website.
