DEPTHX

DEPTHX, 2006: DEPTHX is a hovering autonomous underwater vehicle that explored flooded cenotes in Mexico. The cenotes of Sistema ZacatĀ“on in Tamaulipas, Mexico, are flooded sinkholes, exotic geological formations with unique water chemistry. The deepest, ZacatĀ“on, is over 300m deep. None of the cenotes were mapped before this project. The goals of the DEPTHX project were to construct metrically accurate three-dimensional maps of the cenotes, and to collect environmental data, imagery, water samples, and core samples.
