During the R/V Western Flyer’s ongoing expedition off the coast of Northern California, a brief visit was arranged with the Schmidt Ocean Institute’s (SOI) research vessel Falkor, which was passing through the same area. MBARI has collaborated with SOI on several missions in the past. These photos were taken by Nathan Cunningham of SOI. Click on the images for larger versions.
