R/V <em>Tioga</em>

Tour Tioga

On Thursday, March 29 from 9:00 to 4:00, scientists and community members are invited to the WHOI dock to tour the coastal oceanographic research vessel R/V Tioga. Over the past eight years, Tioga has been a familiar sight in the waters around Cape Cod, carrying scientists on a wide range of physical, chemical, biological, and engineering research missions. Its speed and flexibility enable researchers to get out to the edge of the continental shelf and back in daylight and to respond quickly to events such as outbreaks of harmful algal blooms and marine mammal fatalities. It is also often the place where students in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program and the Summer Student Fellowship program first experience ship-board oceanographic research.
