The lost shipping container sits at an angle on the ocean floor. Image taken from the ROV Doc Ricketts at a depth of 1,290 meters during a research expedition to the lost shipping container in December 2013. This container was lost at sea during a storm in February 2004, then discovered by MBARI later that year. It has since been surveyed by MBNMS twice (2011 & 2013).

The ROV "Doc Ricketts" before launch from the R/V Western Flyer. In 2004, the ship Med Taipei, lost 15 shipping containers just outside of Monterey Bay. Later that same year, MBARI discovered one of these containers resting on the seafloor at 1280 meters below the surface. From March 8-10, 2011, MBNMS and MBARI scientists revisited this shipping container to document its condition and collect sediment cores and organisms for further study.

This wall of HD televisions show the pilot and science chairs what the ROV is currently seeing at the bottom of the ocean. Here they are taking sediment core samples with the ROV's robotic arm that a third person controls. In 2004, the ship Med Taipei, lost 15 shipping containers just outside of Monterey Bay. Later that same year, MBARI discovered one of these containers resting on the seafloor at 1280 meters below the surface.
