Deep Reef Observation Project (DROP) Video

Smithsonian Institution

Dr. Carole Baldwin, a research zoologist and fish expert with the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, gives viewers an inside-look at the Deep Reef Observation Project (DROP). She and her colleagues are trying to understand the biodiversity in coral reefs near Curaçao, an island in the southern Caribbean. Part of the research involves descending far below the ocean's surface in a five person submersible.
