R/V Knorr backing up to an iceberg off the coast of Baffin Island

Ice Flow

Working off the coast of Baffin Island (in the Canadian Arctic), the WHOI-operated research vessel Knorr backs up to an iceberg to retrieve a piece of equipment for the University of Washington. Though WHOI operates four research vessels, those ships are a shared resource of the oceanographic community. Any given cruise might by led by--and will certainly include--scientists, crew members, and technicians from all over the world. (Photo by Karen Johnson, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
