Abstract:

The oceanographic research ship whose design and general characteristics are described herein has recently entered its construction phase. When completed it will provide a highly modern, capable addition to the fleet of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and will be the first major vessel planned and constructed for oceanographic service by a private laboratory in the United States since the same Institution built the 142 ft. ketch ATLANTIS in 1931. The vessel has been designed to do effective all-weather research primarily in the North and South Atlantic Oceans. It has been the desire of the Institution to produce the most versatile and efficient oceanographic vessel afloat and for that reason considerable effort has been expended on the design. The vessel will be named ATLANTIS II.
