Description:   A real-time camera coupled to a multicorer system can be used in a variety of sedimentary settings where spatially restricted habitats occur. Examples of these habitats include hydrocarbon seeps, mud volcanoes, sediment-covered hydrothermal vents such as Guaymas Basin, the zone where the chemocline impinges the seafloor in silled basins such as the Cariaco Basin, Black Sea, Deep Hypersaline Anoxic Basins (DHABs) and Jords such as Saanich Inlet.

Description:   The Multidisciplinary Instrumentation in Support of Oceanography (MISO) Facility provides an adequate pool of commonly used and essential digital imaging equipment and associated sensors and acoustic transponders for various experiments and programs in the ocean sciences. The approach is to ensure that adequate technical support is available to maintain the equipment pool and mobilize/demobilize it when needed by scientists and provide operational expertise for use of the equipment.
