The sonar system was set down at about 2200 m depth in the Main Endeavor Field of the Northeast Pacific Ocean off the coast of Vancouver Island. It has good views of the Grotto and North Tower complexes of black smokers venting from mineralized chimneys. COVIS is operating in coordination with many other instruments at the vents (measuring temperature, chemistry, and biology) emplaced by other investigators as part of the NEPTUNE Canada cabled observatory, which provides power and bandwidth that will enable the sonar images to stream for months to years in the future.
