[11-May-16] In preparation for NAAMES, Alvin - a 3-person research submarine used on a previous cruise - is offloaded from the R/V Atlantis. Four shipping containers outfitted as lab space to measure aerosols were then lifted onto the deck with a crane, followed by boxes of sophisticated optical instruments, incubators, and other equipment required for detecting phytoplankton, zooplankton, bacteria, and viruses.
