Bridge of the Americas

Just Passing Through

On recent evening in late January, R/V Atlantis approached the Bridge of the Americas on its way from the Pacific Ocean to the Panama Canal. After a stop in New Orleans, Atlantis will take the newly rebuilt Alvin to the Gulf of Mexico so scientists can take the sub through its paces and test its systems on a series of verification dives. Following that, Alvin will return to full science operations in its fiftieth year of service to the ocean science community. (Photo by Christopher Morgan, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
