Atlantis and Tioga

Two for Sea

On Saturday, May 25, R/V Atlantis left Woods Hole for the Panama Canal and Astoria, Oregon, carrying the newly overhauled and upgraded submersible Alvin and accompanied by WHOI's coastal research vessel, Tioga. From Astoria, Atlantis will carry the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Jason on two cruises before commencing with Alvin's certification and verification dives. Once complete, the sub (which is just visible in the hanger on the stern of Atlantis) will resume its 49-year career of exploration in support of ocean science.
