Engineer Chris Lumping (left) and welder Tony Delane examine the mooring anchor framework they built for a "multifunction node" (MFN) and buoy system that will help researchers monitor whale activity. Built for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the MFN was deployed last week off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, where North Atlantic right whales spend the winter calving season.
