Guided Tour of R/V Sally Ride at Scripps Nimitz Marine Facility

Session ID#: 100294

Session Description:
Take a guided tour of a modern research vessel, R/V Sally Ride, that is part of the U.S. Academic Research Fleet and designed with state-of-the art instrumentation to perform multidisciplinary oceanographic research worldwide. Visit, in small groups, different parts of the 238 ft-long ship from its highly equipped bridge, to its scientific laboratories and main deck with advanced support equipment including main crane, overboard handling systems and winches. Hear from sea-going scientists about new projects, how the vessel serves their research, and what life is like at sea. Each tour will take an hour and full participation will require the ability to climb stairs between decks.

Buses will depart from Driveway C.
