About the Ronald H. Brown
The Ronald H. Brown is the newest ship in the NOAA research fleet and one of the most advanced research vessels in the world. With 5 laboratories providing nearly 4000 square feet of space and room on deck for 9 laboratory vans, the ship can accommodate the needs of the largest scientific projects. Its full suite of scientific sensors even includes a Doppler radar, one of the few shipboard systems in the world. The ship's 2 azimuthing stern thrusters and water jet bow thruster give it outstanding maneuvering and station-keeping abilities. These state-of-the-art features make the Ronald H. Brown an ideal platform for a host of multidisciplinary environmental research projects. For more information on the Ronald H. Brown, follow the link to its home page.
