Abstract: A video-survey using a Super Mohawk remotely operated vehicle (ROV) was conducted in August 2013 in the Disko Fan area, SE Baffin Bay. A multibeam survey was conducted in the area before the ROV dive. The benthic environment was video-recorded using a standard-definition color camera, at depths of ~900-950 m. The main objectives of this survey were to characterize the geology habitat and species diversity, as well as to identify coral graveyards, and to collect coral samples for growth rates, longevity and palaeoceanography studies.
