Hadal Profiler

We’re going to the deepest parts of the ocean with the Hadal Profiler, a new science tool being developed by University of Hawai’i researchers. The Hadal Profiler will dive down to the bottom of the deepest ocean trenches—measuring water chemistry, ocean currents, and sound as well as capturing video of ocean organisms as it goes, from the surface to 11,000 meters deep. We check out the profiler and some of its instruments, head to the lab to see organisms discovered in the deep ocean trenches, and meet some of the researchers, engineers, and students who are part of the Hadal Profiler development Team.
