DeSSC new users at WHOI
The Deep Submergence Science Committee (DeSSC) hosted an in-person workshop at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution this spring, for a cohort of potential vehicle users, hailing from 11 institutions. DeSSC is a UNOLS committee of scientists who support and advise the operators and funding agencies of the NDSF. The workshop was an opportunity for early-career scientists to hear from experienced deep-sea scientists, NDSF operators, and gain insight into deep-sea research, grant-writing, technology, and data management.
