Welcome home, Alvin!

Alvin arriving at Woods Hole Oceanographic - offloaded from Atlantis by crane. Watch Alvin return to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for the final phase of the overhaul that will allow it to reach 6500 meters depth.

Building on work begun in 2011, this process is part of the sub’s regular maintenance cycle, in which Alvin returns to Woods Hole and the team disassembles it, inspects every part, and reassembles it.
