SCIENCE DAYS REMAINING: 2
We completed dive 93 and the magnetics survey at half past two this afternoon and recovered Isis. Unfortunately a quick worsening of the weather during and after this recovery meant that we were unable to relaunch, so instead we decided to do another MAPR survey over an area where we had seen altered rocks on one of the dives. We are hoping that by the time this is complete the weather will have improved and we will be able to launch our final dive, dive 94, which will try to traverse right across the AVR.


Jimbo with not only his first Isis sample, but also the largest one we took all cruise.
