Visiting URI GSO in Narragansett, RI
Just got back from a recent visit this past Thursday to URI’s Graduate School of Oceanography. It’s a really great program and I’m quite excited to be completing my application for next fall 2013. Shout outs to the NOAA Ocean Explorer program and UNH grads @ URI! More to come on this subject…
EN519 Day 2 Station 15
We are into our second day on EN519, a ‘Red Tide’ Cyst cruise in the Gulf of Maine.
We are at sampling station # 15, somewhere off the coast of New Hampshire in the south western portion of the Gulf of Maine.
Everyone almost has a routine down by now. There are 3 watches in the science party, which holds a combined 24 hour watch for the 9 day cruise: 12:00 AM – 4:00 AM, 4:00 AM – 8:00 AM, 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM, 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM, 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM, 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM.
We saw some pilot and fin whales this morning when the visibility was good; the seas were flat, calm, and the sun was out.
Location: 42 deg., 42.687 North 70 deg., 31.117 West
Time: UTC 299 16:55:00
