The USGS Ocean Acidification Team began packing in June for the arrival of the R/V Atlantis to St. Petersburg, Florida. The team packed all supplies, laboratory equipment, and computers to be loaded and stored on the R/V Atlantis for the September Davis Strait/Arctic Circle Cruise.
After being in the Gulf of Mexico for scientific research, the R/V Atlantis arrived in St. Petersburg, Florida the weekend of June 27th, 2015, for a stop-over before it headed back to home port in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. After that, the next stop is Greenland to pick up the scientists.
Below is a video made by the Florida Institute of Oceanography when the R/V Atlantis was in port at St. Petersburg, Florida in June 2015.
