Sediment trap retrieval

Bringing in the Catch

Aboard R/V Oceanus off Cape Hatteras, N.C., Bosun Clindor Cacho (facing), engineers Scott Worrilow (back left) and Brian Hogue (foreground), research specialist Steve Mangannini (back right) and crew member Chris Armanetti (at rail) retrieve a mooring carrying three sediment traps. Manganini studies particles in the ocean to understand carbon and other material transported from the surface to deep water. This voyage was part of a National Science Foundation-funded project led by scientists Tim Eglinton, Matt Charette, and John Toole to study particle movement from the ocean shelf and slope to the depths in the northwest Atlantic Ocean.
