Picture of the Day - November 12, 2011

The Multiple Opening-Closing Net and Environmental Sensing System (MOCNESS) is launched from the LM GOULD. The nine nets are opened in sequence on the uphaul to sample discrete depths of the water column. You can see the cod ends (PVC buckets) at the end of the nets, which will retain plankton during the tow.
