There is just a few more days left to observe Okeanos Explorer's adventures around PRIMNM and PIPA.

Expedition details: Okeanos Explorer | Expeditions | NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer: Discovering the Deep: Exploring Remote Pacific MPAs | Background Essays

They broadcast pretty much for 10 or 11 hours straight on diving days. It has been a great expedition -- mostly of interest to geologists and coral fans, but there have certainly been a few interesting ceph sitings, including chiroteuthis.
