rainbow off the oceanus bow

End of the rainbow?

Bosun Clindor Cacho admires a rainbow as the Oceanus prepares to dock at St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands in November 2008, after a transit across the Atlantic. The ship, scientists, and crew were in the Caribbean to take measurements of the water-column—a conceptual slice, or column of the ocean from surface to bottom—using sensors and samplers: WHOI scientist Dave Fratantoni's ScanFish (a towed vehicle that samples while moving up and down in the water) and the Video Plankton Recorder. This research and the new ScanFish was funded by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, part of a collaborative research agreement with WHOI.
