Deep Submergence Vehicle Alvin Overhaul in Action


February 20, 2006

Watch the latest progress on the overhaul of the three-person
submersible Alvin at http://alvincam.whoi.edu/view/view.shtml. The sub
has been ashore in Woods Hole, Massachusetts undergoing overhaul since November and will be ready for sea trials
from the research vessel Atlantis in April.  Alvin
dives in 2006
are scheduled in the North Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, in the eastern
Pacific off Costa Rica and Mexico, and along the west coast of the
U.S. from California to Washington and Oregon.  Please note: if
the camera isn’t working when you visit the site, check back again as
it is moved from time to time as work progresses.
