Dec 03: HURL finds WWII aircraft-carrying submarine off O‘ahu

A World War II-era Imperial Japanese Navy mega-submarine, the I-400, lost since 1946 when it was intentionally scuttled by U.S. forces after its capture, has been discovered in more than 2,300 feet of water off the southwest coast of O‘ahu. The discovery resolves a decades-old Cold War mystery of just where the lost submarine lay. The new discovery of the I-400 was led by HURL operations director and chief submarine pilot Terry Kerby. Since 1992, HURL has used its manned submersibles Pisces IV and Pisces V to hunt for submarines and other submerged cultural resources as part of the NOAA maritime heritage research effort.

“How to launch a 13-ton submarine, Part 2” | UnderH2O

In part two of the two-part episode of UnderH2O about the submersible operation at the Hawai‘i Undersea Research Lab (HURL), we observe the launch and recovery of the Pisces V submersible from the recently-restored LRT (Launch, Recovery, and Transport) Platform — a marvel of undersea technology.

“How to launch a 13-ton submarine, Part 1” | UnderH2O

In part one of a two-episode by UnderH2O, we look at the submersible operation at the Hawai‘i Undersea Research Lab (HURL), and meet Terry Kerby, a legend of the underwater world. Terry has been piloting submarines for over 30 years. Part two will show the launch and recovery of the Pisces V submersible from the recently-restored LRT (Launch, Recovery, and Transport) Platform. Also, read more about it in the Huffington Post.

Sep 05: Undersea canyons nourish isles’ deep-water life

Submarine canyons play an important role in maintaining high levels of biodiversity of small invertebrates in the seafloor sediments of the main and northwestern Hawaiian Islands, according to research recently published in the Deep Sea Research Part II. “Canyons may be particularly important in the Hawaiian islands, in part because they supply organic matter to the typically food-limited deep sea,” said lead author Oceanography PhD student Fabio C. De Leo. De Leo and colleagues, including professor Craig Smith, the study’s principal investigator, conducted 34 dives into six canyons and their nearby slopes using HURL’s Pisces submersibles. Read more about it at in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser (subscription required), Science Codex, and the UH System News.

Late Senator Inouye worked with Senator Cochrane to put HURL in their proposed FY13 budget

When our funding was eliminated in 2012, the late Senator Inouye worked to draft language to put us back in the budget. Congress still hasn't voted on a budget for FY13, leaving us in limbo. This flyer highlight's Inouye's proposed language and outlines what is at stake if we don't find funding soon.

February 19th, 2013 – Going Deep - Diving into Deep-Sea Research in Hawaii
