New Kid in Town

OceanusR/V Oceanus Click to Enlarge CMOP's old friend the research vessel Wecoma was recently retired and replaced with her sister ship the R/V Oceanus. The 35-year-old Oceanus, owned by the National Science Foundation and originally operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, was acquired by Oregon State University to replace the Wecoma. She will operate along Oregon and Washington coastlines and assist CMOP's research into how climate change and human activities are affecting coastal areas.
