Survival suits

Survival Suits You

The science crew on board any UNOLS (University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System) research vessel spends part of the first day of every cruise in safety briefings and drills. One activity involves practicing how to put on a survival suit. Here, scientists, engineers, and students on board R/V Atlantis for the OASES 2012 cruise show off their "Gumby" suits, as the gear is also known. The team recently traveled to the Mid-Cayman Rise to explore the deepest hydrothermal vents in the world using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Jason.
