RESCUED Just before WHOI oceanographer Fiamma Straneo was ready to deploy her mooring, the ship's captain was notified that 40 Inuits were stranded on an island 200 miles away. Luckily for Straneo, the captain ascertained that the Inuits were in no immediate danger, so Straneo did not have to scrap her only chance for the year to deploy her mooring. The mooring deployment proceeded, and then the ship picked up the stranded Inuits. (Photo by Fiamma Straneo, WHOI)
