"... sailors take warning." The old adage applies as WHOI's ship R/V Oceanus
sits at the dock in St. George, Bermuda one morning in December 2008, just before a big

(BATS) measurements for the
Bermuda Institute of Oceanographic Science (BIOS), a long-lasting time series study of ocean biogeochemistry.
