HURL (Hawai‘i Undersea Research Laboratory)

The Hawai‘i Undersea Research Laboratory (HURL) was established by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the University of Hawai‘i. HURL's mission is to study deep water marine processes in the Pacific Ocean. You can follow HURL's 2002 expedition to the NWHI by clicking here. In 2002 HURL will be visiting Raita Bank, Northampton Bank, Brooks Banks, and St. Rogatien Bank to evaluate Bottomfish populations. They will also be assessing the role of precious coral beds as foraging grounds for Hawaiian monk seals. Learn more about banks and seamounts.
