NOAA Teacher at Sea
Onboard NOAA Ship Miller Freeman
June 28 – July 12, 2009
Mission: Hake Survey
Geographic Region: California
Date: June 28, 2009
Boarded NOAA ship Miller Freeman, a government research ship of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in San Francisco Harbor, Pier 27, at 1600 hours (4 p.m.). We went through our emergency drills of donning a survival suit and learning how to use an EBD (emergency breathing device).
Beautiful sunny weather. Wind picked up from the west.
We weighed anchor and went past Alcatraz, under the Golden Gate Bridge, and then out into the Pacific Ocean. Once we got past the outer marker we turned south to Monterey Bay.
We’re off to chase hake!
