In November, the human occupied submersible Alvin made its first foray into post-spill Gulf waters on a previously scheduled cruise to study brine pools in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. It returned in December to be used in tandem with the AUV Sentry to examine in greater detail the coral communities visited in October by scientists using Jason. (Photo courtesy of NOAA)
