Note(s): In September 2011, a three week research cruise was conducted by the Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration, Research, and Technology (CIOERT) at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute-Florida Atlantic University (HBOI-FAU) in collaboration with NOAA. This CIOERT Florida Shelf-Edge Exploration II (FLoSEE) Cruise was conducted in two legs using the NOAA Ship Nancy Foster and the University of Connecticut’s (UCONN) Kraken 2 ROV. This Preliminary Cruise Report is for Leg 2 of the cruise which was funded in part by the NOAA Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program (DSCRTP) which supported seven days of ROV time to explore and sample deep-sea coral and sponge ecosystems (DSCEs) within the newly designated Deepwater Coral Habitat Areas of Particular Concern (CHAPC) and the ‘EastHump’ Marine Protected Area (MPA) on the Pourtalès Terrace off the Florida Keys (Figure 1).
