Someone to watch over me

Someone to watch over me

Chief Scientist John Toole watches from the the R/V Oceanus as a team in a small boat sets out to perform repairs on a surface mooring in the Gulf Stream. The mooring is part of a study along the northwest Atlantic's deep western boundary current, trying to understand the transfer of energy from deep water to surface waters, and the effect on climate. A physical oceanographer, Toole was recently elected into the National Academy of Arts and Sciences for outstanding contributions to his field.
