R/V Knorr at the dock in Nuuk

Top Deck

The WHOI-operated research vessel Knorr rests at a dock in Nuuk, Greenland in October 2006, with a Danish naval vessel alongside.  Delivered to WHOI in 1968, Knorr has traveled more than a million miles—the equivalent of two round trips to the Moon or forty trips around the Earth--in the name of science. The ship’s anti-roll tanks and ice-strengthened bow enable it to work in all of the world’s oceans and to the edges of the Polar Regions.
