Sediment trap recovery

Trapping Falling Sediment

WHOI engineer Scott Worrilow guides a yellow sediment trap onto R/V Oceanus along with (clockwise from bottom left) WHOI engineer Brian Hogue, seaman Leo Fitz, and bosun Clindor Cacho, on a 2011 cruise to the Line W moorings, which monitor the flow of Atlantic currents that can influence climate, including the Gulf Stream. The sediment traps attached to these moorings collected particles drifting down through the water, for studies by WHOI research specialist Steven Manganini (far right in photo).
