Alvin returns

Ready for 2014

Shipboard Scientific Services Group technician Allison Heater stands on the submersible Alvin during recovery of the sub to R/V Atlantis in 2009 off the coast of Oregon. The past year, 2013, saw the return of Alvin to the water after a 2-year refit that gave the sub a larger personnel sphere and the potential to reach 6500 meters after another round of upgrades in the future. In 2014, Alvin will resume science operations, building on its record of more than 4,600 dives in the service of exploration and of expanding knowledge of the ocean and our planet.
