UW's research vessel goes out on 1,000th assignment

UW Associate Professor Susan Hautala demonstrates to student Kelly Chandler, left, how to deploy a 20-micron collection net over the side of the Barnes. It's dropped to a depth of about 30 ft. The purpose of the collection is to collect diatoms which are plentiful in Elliott Bay.
