19 sample stations including CTD, Plankton Net, Boxcore and ROV taken on board the RV Celtic Explorer in April 2011 during the Biodiscovery and deep ocean ecosystems survey. A large instrument package called a CTD is the standard workhorse of oceanographers for acquiring water column profiles. It is called a CTD because as a minimum it measures electrical Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth (pressure). The plankton net is a funnel-shaped, fine-meshed net that is towed through the water. The net concentrates the plankton from hundreds of gallons of water that pass through it. A simple net can be constructed to capture microscopic plankton. A remotely operated vehicle (ROV) is an unoccupied underwater robot that is connected to a ship by a series of cables. These cables transmit command and control signals between the operator and the ROV, allowing remote navigation of the vehicle.
