One of the Passive Acoustic Moorings laid out on deck ready for deployment. The moorings are composed of weights, floats, the acoustic data recording devices and an acoustic release that will allow the mooring and instruments to float to the surface when triggered by the crew on the 2019 Antarctic voyage that will come and pick them up.
