Out to Sea
As part of of an experiment for the Coupled Boundary Layers/Air-Sea Transfer (C-BLAST) Defense Research Initiative, an extra cable was attached to a subseafloor node built for the Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory.

Here, researchers and crew members aboard the R/V Nobska lower the node containing the extra cable. Data compiled from the node will contribute to a long-term study designed to improve understanding of air-sea interaction and coupled atmospheric and oceanic boundary layer dynamics at low wind speeds.
