The Woods Hole Field Center (WHFC) welcomed a new addition to its trailer fleet with the arrival of the new lab van.

This heated facility is lined on all sides with shelves for storing boxed and dried sediment material for short-term sample analysis. The samples now stored in the new facility are inventoried and accessed regularly by the laboratory staff for the purpose of subsampling for further study. This van is a replacement for an older one that was supposed to be temporary.

There was a great saga behind the acquisition of this facility, and so we were all excited when it finally rolled onto the platform on January 10, 2002. Despite a rainstorm and the upcoming Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) planning meeting, we all rallied and transferred the boxed and inventoried material to its new home.

On January 18, 2002, fresh from a red-eye flight out of San Francisco, Ellen Mecray joined Sarah Jablonski, Michael Casso, Flavia Wood, Jennifer Moore, Joel Moore, Amy Farris, and student intern Vanessa LeBron to celebrate the arrival with a champagne toast and ceremony.
