Scientist Fiamma Straneo and Kyle Covert,
Boatswain of the R/V Knorr, put
together the upper part of a mooring designed to measure the transport of fresh
water through the Hudson Strait. The long tube containing a CTD recorder
resides in the upper part of the water column, where collisions with icebergs
and sea ice could occur.
