Broda with long core a-frame configuration

Longing to go, again

Senior research specialist Jim Broda stands under the long core deployment mechanism on R/V Knorr as the ship sits at the WHOI dock in September 2009. The long corer, which Broda helped develop, can extract 45-meter (150-foot) cores from the seafloor—some of the world’s longest. The corer is used to study climate history, sea-level change, and a variety of other scientific puzzles whose secrets are buried in sediments at the bottom of the sea.
