R/V Arenaria

Little Boat that Can

Not all of WHOI's research fleet are large, far-ranging vessels with large crews, but all take scientists places they couldn't otherwise go to gather data they couldn't otherwise get. Here, WHOI geologist Jeff Donnelly, postdoc Andrea Hawkes, JP student Michael Toomey, and research assistant Richard Sullivan work on R/V Arenaria off Newfoundland in the summer of 2013. Their goal: to collect sediment samples in water ranging from 50 to over 80 meters depth. Data from the cores and from 3-D seafloor maps the team developed will help extend records of winter storm in the region centuries or millenia into the past.
