JC007: Drilling the Mid-Atlantic Ridge


Cruise diary

Day 4: Thursday 8 March - Still on passage to sample area
Position at midnight: 22º44N, 29º21W

Today our watches continued as usual and generally it has been a quiet day. We stopped for a short time at 14:15 to deploy the SVP like we did on Tuesday. This deployment was successful. The remainder of day was spent continuing to plan the more specific details of the sites at which we intend to sample and in what order. The highlight of the evening was the musical wonder of a duet between Chris on his Greek bouzouki and Bram on his (finally tuned) churango!
