Oregon State University (OSU) Department of Oceanography's 80-foot research vessel, R/V Acona, seen in waters off Newport, Oregon, United States. Using a boom on the foredeck, the crew lowers a container, takes a water sample and retrieves it. (Note: Reportedly, one of the two persons seen near the end of the footage may be Hugh Dobson, a technician from BC Canada, who worked for OSU Professor Kilho Park.)
One of the two persons near the end of the footage looks like Hugh Dobson who was a technician from BC Canada who came to OSU to work for Professor Kilho Park (this insert provided by Iver Duedall, OSU graduate student 1963-66; spent time on Acona on cruises--most of the time I was seasick)
