(Benham) Rise to the Occasion

 benham rise to the occasion

Seen in the image is an almost 'bare' rosette cage being brought up from the water. Notice that the only instruments attached are the ADCPs (up- and down-looking) and the external battery unit. Midway of data acquisition during this oceanographic cruise in the Benham Rise of the Philippines (June 2016), some onboard equipment and instruments started to malfunction-- except for these beauties. Stripping the rosette off from faulty water bottles and CTDs, this ADCP-trio rose to the surface like superheroes, constantly reliable and always ready for duty.
