Storm Tossed

Storm Tossed

January 29, 2019

Oceanographers working in the North Atlantic always face the prospect stormy weather, but those on a 2010 expedition on the research vessel Atlantis got more than their share. First, they skirted the fringes of Hurricane Igor (shown here) then, over the next two weeks, encountered two more weather systems: Tropical Storm Nicole and an unnamed, nor’easter-type event. Despite the rough seas, the ship and its crew enabled the science team to complete most of their research objectives. (Photo by Lance Wills, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
