The R/V Atlantis leaves Woods Hole on November 6, 2015 to participate in the North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study. Since ocean color plays a prominent role in this research, it is hoped that the usually cloudy November skies over the North Atlantic will open up occasionally to allow satellite ocean color instruments to extend the reach of the ship-borne instruments to the ocean beyond the ship's horizon.

The above VIIRS image was collected on September 23, 2015, and it shows the line along which Atlantis plans to make her primary stations. Click on the image for a larger, broader view.
