Knorr and Atlantis

See You at Sea

It's rare to see WHOI's two Global Class research vessels, R/V Knorr and Atlantis, in port at the same time. Rarer still to see them leave together on the same cruise. On February 19, Knorr (left) departed just hours before Atlantis (at dock, right) for a three-week cruise off the Carolina coast in one of the roughest times of year. The goal of the project, known as LatMix, is to study the dynamics of mixing and stirring in the upper ocean across the Gulf Stream at scales smaller than the large ocean eddies, but larger than internal waves and convection. Both ships return tomorrow morning, March 17. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
