Science and Technology Log

Due to the seas being too rough we put the sampling on hold last night.  This morning one of the electrical cables got twisted up so they are working on that right now.  We have covered about 24 stations to this time.

Personal Log 

Slept well again last night even though the ship was rocking and rolling.  Very strange feeling when you are in your bunk – like sleeping on a waterbed and someone else is jumping up and down on it.  The other volunteers are feeling a little better.  I have sent emails – or rather, I composed email and tried to send it out, but I have received nothing back so I am dubious that anyone is receiving any from me.  We have been close enough to shore to observe some sea birds – mostly terns.  On the haul in the dredge, we have seen skates, starfish and hermit crabs.
