R/V Oceanus

Hail, Oceanus

Loaded with buoys, the WHOI research vessel Oceanus left the WHOI dock in 1990 on one of the more than 500 missions it performed for scientists over the 35 years it was operated by WHOI, from 1975 to 2011. At the end of that period, it was slated for retirement by the National Science Foundation, but the well-maintained ship was still in good shape, so it was transferred to Oregon State University, where it continues to work for oceanographers in the eastern Pacific.
