To experience it yourself, watch a Google Earth YouTube video embedded below or explore the area more interactively with the Google Earth plug-in on Ocean Showcase.

The colored surface areas seen in the video represent underwater terrain data collected during the expedition. The data, highlight photos and videos have been incorporated into Google Earth so you can now explore them on your own by diving under the surface.
