Recently we spent two days tank testing our newest #nsffunded broadband instrument, Manta, at #whoi_avast.  This testing allows us to view the behavior of the #nanometrics sensor when released as it would be on the seafloor.  Engineers were able to collect valuable information and make modifications prior to building the rest of the fleet. 

We are fortunate to have access to these types of facilities at @whoi.ocean.
