long core

Made to fit

A fisheye view of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Long Core shot from the starboard hangar of the research vessel Knorr. The wall of the hangar, the upper portion now supported by cantilevered trusses, was slotted to allow cores as long as 45 meters to be rigged safely inboard. The hangar modification was just a small part of the structural overhaul executed to prepare the R/V Knorr for the heavy array of purpose-built equipment developed to handle the new coring system.
