Homeward bound, heading south through the Gulf of Maine to a few more sampling stations off the coast of New Hampshire, near the bathymetric feature known as Jeffery’s Ledge. We hope to get a few more ‘Craib’ Sediment cores before steaming back to Rhode Island.



We have left the Bay of Fundy after several days of good sampling and we are headed back out to the Gulf of Maine, and eventually back to Rhode Island.


We have bare’d off where we had heave’d too, between Grand Manan Island and New Brunswick. We are now back to sampling, en route to station 99 in the Bay of Fundy. We replaced the Craib corer with the simple Van veen (grabber corer) for stations with rocky sediment types here in the Bay of Fundy. Swell and wind have died down considerably to although there is a bit of a lightning storm brewing now, but otherwise we are doing well.
