Supplementary data:


The remotely operated vehicle ROV KIEL 6000 is a deep diving platform rated for water
depths of 6000 meters. It is linked to a surface vessel via an umbilical cable transmitting power (copper
wires) and data (3 single-mode glass fibers). As standard it comes equipped with still and video cameras
and two different manipulators providing eyes and hands in the deep. Besides this a set of other tools
may be added depending on the mission tasks, ranging from simple manipulative tools such as chisels
and shovels to electrically connected instruments which can send in-situ data to the ship through the
ROVs network, allowing immediate decisions upon manipulation or sampling strategies.
