Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This study describes the results of NOAA'S Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROV) dive that took place along the Verrill Steps onboard their research vessel Okeanos Explorer in 2019. The ROV surveyed one of the Verrill Steps revealing high resolution images of all its components which allows to link theoretical knowledge of cyclic steps to visual observation on the deep sea floor.
