The ship will deploy researchers to set up camps in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands for four months. Field researchers from NOAA and six partner organizations will conduct research and conservation activities at French Frigate Shoals, Laysan Island, Lisianski Island, Pearl and Hermes Reef, and Kure Atoll.
