Multicore deployment

Gentle Lift-off

Coring technician Ellen Roosen (white hat) steadies a multicore while ordinary seaman Richard Barnes assists as the instrument is lifted off the deck of R/V Atlantis in preparation for deployment. The instrument was used to collect sediment samples during a 2011 cruise to study unusual hypersaline "lakes" at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. Chief scientist on the cruise was microbial ecologist Ginny Edgcomb and the sediment work was led by geobiologist Joan Bernhard.
