During Leg 2 of Oases 2013, HROV Nereus was outfitted with cameras from the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER submersible James Cameron used to make his historic dive to the Mariana Trench in March 2012. Utilizing these cameras, online viewers were able to follow along in real-time as Dr. Chris German and his team aboard R/V Falkor studied, imaged, and sampled one of the most unique ecosystems on our planet: hydrothermal vents at the Mid-Cayman Rise. 

The archived footage of each Nereus dive in ROV mode during the expedition is archived and viewable via the links below.
