Steady as she goes

On board the R/V Thomas Thompson cruise TN230 on the Kermadec Arc north of New Zealand, marine geologist Dan Fornari (in boots) steadies the imaging and sampling vehicle TowCam during recovery.  This research cruise was investigating the biological communities and the geology of hydrothermally active seamounts using shipboard mapping systems, TowCam, CTDs, dredges, and plankton nets.
