RV Maurice Ewing was a research vessel operated by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. It was retired in 2005 and replaced by RV Marcus Langseth in 2008. Although a multipurpose vessel, Maurice Ewing 's notable capability was to collect multichannel seismic data.
The vessel was later renamed several times: - Scan Resolution, Bergan Resolution and now[when?] the Reflect Resolution. Still to this day the vessel operates as a multi-streamer seismic research vessel.
