EN519 Day 8: Homeward bound
EN519 Day 7
EN519 Day 7
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.
EN519 Day 5 8:21 PM EST
1st mate just called off station 88 (in the Gulf of Maine) where we were headed, so no more sampling for a while and we’re off to the Bay of Fundy & New Brunswick.
EN519 Day 5 6:00 PM EST
Starting to get quite windy, up around 25 knots, so we are heading up to the Bay of Fundy to weather the storm.
