Tubular, remotely operated vehicle named SCINI, under water

This remotely operated vehicle, known as SCINI (Submersible Capable of under Ice Navigation and Imaging) travels under the Antarctic ice to photograph benthic communities. It was used by Dr. Stacy Kim for her biological research and, with modification, by ANDRILL in the discovery of the new sea anemone species.
