[02-Jun-16] While forecasts are used to extensively plan field campaigns such as the Korea - United States Ocean Color (KORUS-OC) Study, weather always has the chance to interrupt the best laid plans. In some cases, rough seas can postpone or change the schedule of observations. This photo, taken aboard a research vessel during KORUS-OC, shows waves breaking over the bow during rough seas.
