A Research Vessel (RV or R/V)is a ship or boat designed, modified, and/or equipped to carry out research at sea. Research vessels carry out a number of roles. Some of these roles can be combined into a single vessel but others require a dedicated vessel. As their titular reference indicates, these ships help in the detailed analyses and studies of the oceanic arena for various purposes. The construction and the structural composition of these kinds of ships are majorly customised to suit the operational needs. This type of vessels are designed and built in a manner to face the toughest environmental conditions at the sea.
Some of main purposes of research vessels are:
- Seismic Surveys (carried out by Seismic Vessel)
- Hydrographic Survey
