The Sally Ride is steaming north, for the last major “big ship” effort. We have 6 days on site to recover 61 moorings, and were greeted this morning by news from the Captain to expect 15-19′ seas upon arrival. No problem! Or so we hope. We have an excellent ship, a solid science party, and lots of enthusiasm. We also have a large map of all our mooring locations (gotta use that onboard poster printer for something), and we’re ready to start crossing them off one by one.
More updates tomorrow when hopefully we have good news, and maybe even data, to share. Wish us luck.
