|CTD array headed down. SOI/ Mark Heckman|
There are new blog posts every day, either by myself or the Chief Scientist, or whomever in the science crew I can convince to write. I will also be on the radio with Carlie on the 28th.
Some topics so far:
10/15 Converging on a Point (Getting everyone in to Pohnpei from around the world)
10/15-Present Mapping with Mike - Cruise accounts from the Chief Scientist
10/18 Using the CTD to Calibrate the Multibeam Sonar (less technical than it sounds and great images taken by putting my camera on a very long stick off the back of the ship)
10/19 Amelia Earhart and Nukumanu Atoll (yup, we are off the last confirmed position for Amelia Earhart)
10/20 The Meaning of Life or at Least a Multibeam Acquisition Screen (a look at the coloful screens we watch 24-7)
10/23 Flying in Darkness - Charting Unknown Reefs at Night
and our most current:
10/24 Colored Lines - Decyphering the CTD Code (again, less technical than it sounds. I am also aiming some of these for HS students studying sea floor mapping)
Next up will be an entry on the barracuda that ended up on deck and the results thereof.
