NOAA Ship Ka'imimoana underway

NOAA Ship Ka'imimoana underway.

Ka’imimoana (Hawaiian for “ocean seeker”) supported climate studies and deployed, recovered and serviced deep-sea moorings for data-collecting buoys from its Honolulu, Hawaii homeport. Ka'imimoana was originally built as the T-AGOS class U.S. Naval Ship Titan in 1989 by Halter Marine in Moss Point, Miss. Titan was operated by the Military Sealift Command until it was transferred to NOAA in 1993, converted to an oceanographic ship, and delivered to NOAA as Ka'imimoana in 1996. The vessel conducted was homeported in Honolulu, Hawaii.
