1. R/V Knorr recently visited the Faroe Islands (in background) at the tail-end of a month-long cruise to investigate the origins of a newly discovered current flowing south through the Denmark Strait. During the trip, which was led by WHOI physical oceanographer Robert Pickart, scientists and technicians deployed the first line of instrument moorings spanning the strait and made roughly 300 CTD (conductivity, temperature, depth) casts. Weather permitting, the instruments will be recovered next year. Read dispatches and view photos and videos from the entire trip on the cruise website. (Photo by Rachel Fletcher)
