Jaguar recovery onto Oden.

Leashing a Jaguar

Helicopter pilot Sven Stenvall pulls and lowers a rope line toward Ola Andersson—chief officer of the ice breaker Oden—as he stands on deck. Andersson used the line to secure the autonomous underwater vehicle Jaguar to the Oden, as Stenvall flew back to get WHOI researchers Hanu Singh, Rob Reves-Sohn, and John Kemp off the ice. (The helicopter had to drop weight—in the form of three humans—when it added the weight of Jaguar.) (Photo by Chris Linder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
