2019-2020 Adventure Series: Bruce Strickrott: Deep Sea Research on ALVIN

January 16, 2020

Underwater adventures on Alvin, the U.S. science community’s only human-occupied submersible vessel dedicated to deep sea research.

Bruce Strickrott, Senior Pilot and Group Manager for Alvin, has piloted more than 300 dives on the iconic research sub. Alvin is owned by the U.S. Navy and operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. Originally launched in 1964, Alvin is the world’s longest operating deep sea submersible and has completed more than 4,700 dives. This hardworking sub received an extensive overhaul and upgrade from 2011 through 2013 that greatly enhanced its capabilities to withstand depths of 4500 to 6500 meters for great lengths of time, allowing scientists to work in unexplored parts of the ocean.

The evening program will be at StoneRidge.
