The V-Sat dome houses one of two groups of satellite communications equipment. The mast supports navigation equipment, radar, emergency alarm horn, ship’s whistle, and flood lights. The mast is also used to support the various flags (which are flown while in port) and signal flags to show the state of the ship. (Credit: Wenfang Zhang & IODP) [Photo ID: exp356_131]
