WHOI researchers and the crew of the R/V Connecticut prepare the Gumbymoor buoy for deployment in February 2005. The team set the mooring for a testing period near Martha's Vineyard before it is ultimately deployed for seismic monitoring off the Caribbean coast of Grenada. (Photo by Jayne Doucette, WHOI)
