Paint Job

Brian Hogue, a WHOI engineering assistant in the Physical Oceanography Department, paints "the cage" section of an ocean current monitoring instrument (the vector averaging current meter) in the paint booth in the institution's Clark South building. The "cage" holds a rotor and vane (not yet in place in this photo), which mechanically spin based on the speed and direction of ocean currents. The current meters are part of the mooring system for the Line W project to study the Gulf Stream and the Deep Western Boundary Current.
