This is one of the several inquiries from concerned residents in the gulf:
I recently made a post to your wall regarding the NOAA vessel Okeanos Explorer which in past weeks has spent a great deal of time running grids in the Macondo Well area. If you click on the link in the message it will take take you to the NOAA Fleet Map. In the left hand column you can click on the Okeanos Explorer button and it will highlight that vessel’s location, which at present shows it still in the Macondo area.
If you click on the Okeanos symbol, which is EX, a window pops up. Within that window is a link showing the vessel’s latest track. You can zoom in on that track with the tool provided in the left hand corner of the screen. After reading through the list of this vessel’s capabilities, my guess would be that they are mapping the sea floor extensively in this region. They also ran down the ridge along the entire Florida coast south to the Keys.
