The Submarine Ring of Fire ’14 cruise is completed and PMEL scientists are back in the lab analyzing the data.  While underway, 19 short videos were created by Saskia Madlener with music by Charlie Brooks.  Take a look at the videos to get a sense of what life on the ship was like and how the scientists dealt with successes and challenges at sea.   Despite problematic weather, the scientists were able to get biological, chemical, geological and acoustic data over the duration of the cruise, using hydrographic instruments and the remotely operated vehicle Jason.
