Knorr Atlantis

Ready for 2013

R/V Atlantis chief engineer Chris Morgan captured this rare shot of WHOI's two large oceanographic research vessels freshly painted and ready to leave drydock at the end of 2012. Both have a full schedule for 2013. In January, R/V Knorr sails for Cape Town, South Africa, followed by stops in Uruguay, Barbados, and Greenland, among others. Atlantis will be spending a little longer in the shipyard having its massive stern A-frame reinstalled in preparation for dock trials with the newly rebuilt Alvin, which is scheduled to resume operations in the spring.
