Title: Research diving on remote shoals of the Nicaraguan Rise, Southwest Caribbean
Author: Hallock, P; Jaap, WC; Donnelly, KB; Hine, AC
Abstract: As apart of a study investigating the sedimentology and morphologies of carbonate platforms of the Nicaraguan Rise, a dive team carried out photographic and video-recorded observations of the benthos and sediments at selected sites on Serranilla and Pedro Banks during March and April 1982 Divers were deployed from the research vessel R/V Cape Hatteras to an inflatable chase boat. Diver observations of poorly developed reefs on Pedro Bank and the lack of reef development on the windward margin of Serranilla Bank were instrumental in understanding sedimentologic patterns found using seismic profiling, grab sampling and dredging.
