Deep-sea Cruises 2010 - Cruise 1



Cruise Log: 9/22/2010

While the ROV was in the water, some of the scientists got a reprieve from the lab work and sample processing and got a chance to see some dolphins swimming on the bow. They put on a show; some surfed the waves while others twirled in the water. This was a nice break, but work beckoned as we had continued success using both the ROV and surface deployed gear to collect specimens. See our next blog summarizing one of our target stations: Viosca Knoll 826.
