Alvin recovery

Anyone Home?

Patrick Neumann, an able-bodied seaman on the research vessel Atlantis, communicates with the pilot of the submersible Alvin as the sub is recovered during dives in November off the coast of San Diego. Neumann, who started sailing at age 18, joined WHOI in 2004. He was among researchers and ship's crew eager to see Alvin's performance in deep waters, after a three-year overhaul and major upgrade. During the dives in November, the U.S. Navy cleared Alvin for return to service; this spring, it wlll dive in the Gulf of Mexico for a series of dives on a science verification cruise.
