research vessel Anton Dohrn

Technology at Sea

After arriving at WHOI in 1940, the research vessel Anton Dohrn made at least 40 cruises from Maine to New Jersey, testing bathythermographs, underwater cameras, and other newly-designed instruments. Scientists also used Anton Dohrn for underwater sound transmission experiments and harbor studies. Technology on WHOI-operated research vessels has come a long way since then. Scientists aboard the R/V Neil Armstrong have access to today’s state-of-the-art equipment and technology, including the ship's EK80 broadband acoustic echosounder, which can detect a wide range of marine life, gas bubbles, and detailed characteristics of the ocean bottom.
