Knorr departing

There and Back Again

R/V Knorr is a common sight in Woods Hole, but its departure still draws a crowd, especially when it leaves for far-flung places. Here, the ship pulls away from the WHOI dock on a relatively short cruise, but one with big implications. The November 2013 trip took Knorr just 100 miles south of Cape Cod to the edge of the continental shelf, where scientists and technicians deployed the first moored instruments that form the backbone of the Pioneer Array, a part of the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). Additional cruises in 2014 and beyond will expand the capabilities of the observatory in the Atlantic and elsewhere. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
