long corer on Knorr

A very long corer

In 2007, WHOI geologists retrieved the first sediment cores with the newly installed “long-corer” on the research vessel Knorr. Bill Curry, Jim Broda, and several WHOI colleagues conceived and built the new corer, which at 150-feet is the longest piston-coring system in the United States, nearly twice as long and four times as heavy as existing systems in the research fleet.
