    HIMB's news release states: "To learn more about these rich coral habitats, HIMB's research professor Brian Bowen and Richard Pyle, associate zoologist, database coordinator, and diving safety officer for the Bishop Museum, are embarking on a three-year study using advanced rebreather technology to discover, document and characterize deep coral reefs at three locations across the Pacific Ocean. [...] These expeditions will allow researchers to record high-definition video, collect specimens for new species documentation and various lab-based analyses, and estimate biodiversity levels."
