Atlantis II and Alvin
The research vessel Atlantis II, owned by the National Science Foundation, joined the WHOI fleet in 1963. It cruised over one million miles as both a general-purpose research ship and as a tender for Alvin from 1983 until the ship's retirement in 1996. (©Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
