James Cameron to be publicly honored with Scripps Nierenberg Prize
Date:5/15/2013

y providing a stand-alone camera platform to film the submarine, to survey and scout locations prior to manned dives, and to test new technology before integration on the manned submarine," said Hardy. "The lander also acted as a baited lure to attract fish and other animals, concentrating them for photography and behavioral studies."

Sampling devices can be tailored to the lander to address various branches of ocean science, including biology, chemistry, geology, and physics.

"Scripps Institution of Oceanography is extremely grateful to James Cameron for his generous lander gift, which not only holds historical value, but will prove to be a key resource for many significant deep-sea expeditions in the near future," said Catherine Constable, interim director of Scripps. "The lander will help us unlock the mysteries of Earth's least explored environment, which remains a true frontier of science."

Doug Bartlett, a Scripps marine microbiologist and chief scientist of Cameron's DEEPSEA CHALLENGE expedition, plans to put the lander system to work soon for Scripps science.

"The lander will be used with various payloads to collect seawater, sediments, animals in baited traps, and microbes following in-situ filtration and in-situ enrichment," said Bartlett. "It may see operation in the (Pacific Ocean's) Sirena Deep this June."

On March 26, 2012, Cameron plunged 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) below the ocean surface in a one-man submarine to the Challenger Deep in the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench, the first solo diver to reach such depths. Scripps has been collaborating with Cameron for nearly a decade, focusing on developing new ways to explore and study the deepest parts of the oceans. The DEEPSEA CHALLENGE was a joint scientific expedition by Cameron, a National Geographic explorer-in-residence; National Geographic; and Rolex to conduct deep-ocean research and exploration.
