The First Atlantica Expeditions Mission

The Atlantica Undersea Colony Expeditions accomplished its first mission on Saturday with a bathymetric survey of a potential site for the world record breaking underwater mission scheduled in April 2009. Shown here is a satellite view of the potential site surveyed by the Atlantica Team. According to Expeditions Leader Dennis Chamberland, no definite conclusions have been made about the site dubbed POLARIS A, that this first expedition was as much a team and equipment shakedown cruise as anything else.

Next week, weather permitting, the team will move to another potential site called POLARIS B. “At least four or five more in-depth surveys have to be accomplished before we can draw any definite conclusions about the suitability of either site. However, it was more than exciting to finally get at least a small Atlantica Expeditions team wet and underway!”

Show here is team member Eric M. Chamberland, a certified Aquanaut and teammember, during the survey mission.
