Tales from the road

The other OSU Fleet

March 8th, 2012

Aboard the Oceanus









We had a great time aboard the new research vessel the Oceanus yesterday. Sunny skies and relatively calm waters combined to give us a rosy view of what we’re sure is hard and rewarding research work.

Our hosts Daryl Swensen, David O’Gorman and Toby Martin from the Martech group in the College of Earth, Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences allowed us to participate in a day of training exercises designed to ready the ship and crew for an upcoming inspection by the National Science Foundation.

See the picture blog below for a brief perspective of the exciting work happening in Corvallis and around the world.

We watched as the crew practiced anchoring, collected soil and water samples, deployed a glider and performed docking trials. If it weren’t rosy enough the day even finished with gray whale sightings and a full moon to follow back to Corvallis.
