Research vessels are critical platforms for oceanographers, engineers, marine biologists, students and others to access the marine environment. Part lab, part classroom, part transportation and part hotel, ships like R/V Taani, and R/V Oceanus before it, make marine research possible. They are also essential for training the next generation of ocean-going scientists.

Here are some of the kinds of research and educational programs that will take place aboard R/V Taani and the other RCRVs.
