"ROPOS performance has been outstanding. It has required little maintenance and most time, when in the water, has been dedicated to science equipment installation, removal and repair."
K. Shepherd, General Manager, Operations Manager, Canadian Scientific Submersible Society (CSSF)
"On the NOAA trip concluding July 18, ROPOS has worked so well it has been almost boring."
J. Garrett, Manager, Government Relations and Corporate Development, CSSF
"The absolutely exciting news is that ROPOS has been working successfully at a water depth of 4900m off Alaska continuously for the past 14 hours. In addition, we found the most interesting venting communities yet at a subduction zone setting. We are exhilarated; everybody did an outstanding job.
