Peaceful water in a (normally) rocky sea

The Irminger Sea is known for rocky weather, but WHOI research associate Dan Torres found quiet water off the coast of Greenland during an October research cruise aboard the WHOI-operated research vessel Knorr. Buoys on the ship's deck were attached to moorings recovered earlier in the month-long expedition to study water density flowing through Denmark Strait.  (Photo by Daniel Torres, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
