Jason launched over the side of the R/V Revelle during the NSF-funded OOI Cabled Array expedition. A low voltage junction box, built by the UW Applied Physics Lab, is latched under the vehicles 'belly' to safely take it to the seafloor. Credit: M. Elend, University of Washington, V18.
A diverse suite of displays allow monitoring of ROV operations in the control van during the dive to the Pythias Oasis Site discovered by, then, University of Washington School of Oceanography undergraduate Brendan Philp. The central large display shows the "Gusher" site, ringing by orange anemones and adjacent clams. The Jason manipulator holds a temperature probe used to measure the warm fluids. Credit: M.
