Knorr Demerara Rise 2010

We are on the research vessel R/V Knorr surveying and collecting sediment in the western tropical Atlantic, off the northeast coast of South America.  The goal of our cruise is to collect sediment that we can use to learn about how ocean circulation has changed in the past, especially in association with the last ice age and abrupt climate events (such as cold episodes that have occurred on 1,000-year time scales).
