Our finalé, the third dive of our expedition, was hugely successful. Full duration of 4 hours on the bottom. A travers of about 1 mile in the easternmost shallow basin of the Eastern Pool. What look to be microbial mats and spectacular basal outcroppings at the eastern wall, cut by dramatic canyons. Victor and John got some great pix and videos!


  1. I’m just blown away by your courage!

  2. Kathy - love following your blog and all the work that you do! I have a question that has bugged me for years (and it's a robust debate amongst my friends), that I believe you're uniquely positioned to answer. If you wouldn't mind shooting me an email at, I'd greatly appreciate it. Couldn't find an email for you elsewhere.
