Instrument Platform Details

Folger Pinnacle

Folger Pinnacle platform from above.

On 28 August 2010, a unique and exciting new platform was installed by a dive team in 23m of water atop a rock outcrop adjacent to Folger Passage. It took a flatbed truck, four boats and their crews, multiple ROVs and multiple dive teams to get it installed! This platform will help scientists study sea life and ocean processes in a high-energy, near-shore, hardground environment.
