Dive Deeper


Postdoctoral researcher Katrina Twing participated in a Chief-Scientist Training Cruise focusing on the use of Deep Submergence Vehicles in July 2017 onboard the R/V Atlantis. In addition to learning about leading oceanographic research expeditions and the latest uses of ship-to-shore communications (also known as telepresence), Katrina got the opportunity to dive in the HOV Alvin. During her dive, she tested out a large-volume in situ sampling device our group is helping develop for use on our upcoming expedition to sample the Lost City Hydrothermal Field. More details about the sampling device and her experience with Alvin can be found at https://vimeo.com/191864900.
