Departure Day!

Our science crew leaves New England today for the Southern tip of South America, where they’ll meet our ship, the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer.  It’s a 24 hr journey and everyone is excited to get going.  Pictured here: Kerry Whittaker, Susanne Menden-Deuer, Gang Chen and Rebecca Robinson, all from URI.
