Dusk over the Bering Sea

At rest: A multicorer, an oceanographic sampler that drives cylindrical tubes into the seafloor to take multiple sediment samples at once, sits on the deck of the R/V Thomas G. Thompson at the sunset of a long day. WHOI biologist Carin Ashjian led a cruise in the Bering Sea in May 2010, accompanied by WHOI researcher Phil Alatalo and scientists from several other institutions. The cruise, funded by the National Science Foundation and the North Pacific Research Board, was part of a continuing program to discover if the Arctic ecosystem is changing as its climate warms.
