HONOLULU, Hawaii - University of Hawaii scientists plan to embark on a final expedition to deep waters off Oahu to study how chemical weapons dumped in the ocean decades ago are affecting seawater, marine life and sediment.

The research vessel Kilo Moana will leave port Wednesday, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported (http://bit.ly/1pyoSJF). It will deploy a remotely operated vehicle at a dump site 5 to 10 miles south of Pearl Harbor.
