The Goddess Visits the South Pole

The BBC higlights a January expedition of Southampton Oceanographic Centre’s (SOC) ROV Isis to the Antarctic. The project is to explore the sediment and organisms of Marguerite Bay. SOC aquired Isis in 2003 from a colloboration with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI). Isis is largely based on WHOI’s Jason II and has the typical equipment you would expect out of an ROV, high resolution cameras, manipulators arms, and various add tools for specific tasks.
