The WHOI mooring group deploys a University of Miami mooring from R/V Knorr.

Big Ocean, Big Experiment, Big Equipment

Members of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution mooring group deployed a University of Miami mooring from R/V Knorr, part of the largest oceanographic field experiment in WHOI history. Over seven weeks in the summer of 2006, dozens of researchers focused tons of equipment on a 24-by-31-square-mile patch of ocean about 100 miles east of Atlantic City, N.J. The goal: to assemble a highly-detailed picture of how sound waves travel through the complex, ever-changing medium of coastal waters. (Photo by Karen Johnson, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
