[From foreground to background] WHOI researchers Bill Curry and Jim Broda, as well as Rolf Ambjornsen of the Norwegian marine services company Odim, help retrieve the first sediment ever collected by the new WHOI-designed long-coring system on September 5, 2007. Curry, Broda, and their WHOI colleagues conceived and built the new corer, which at 150-feet is the longest piston-coring system in United States, nearly twice as long and four times as heavy as existing systems in the research fleet. Odim designed and built the trawl winch and core handling system. (Photo by Alexander Dorsk, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
