Track the ship's current location and watch our progress.
The R/V Marcus G. Langseth is a 235-ft research vessel owned by the National Science Foundation and operated by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. The ship is a floating geophysical and seismic laboratory, with the ability to measure various properties of (and below) the earth's seafloor. It's part of the UNOLS fleet, an organization of academic institutions and oceanographic research vessels.
See the ship specifications for more information.
Have a question for us about the project, life onboard the ship, or what it's like to do science in the field? Email us and we'll direct your question to a member of the science or ship crew.
