On-board Diary: The wind
Author: Hanna Paulomaki, Christina Abel
Date: April 8, 2011
The weather has not really been on our side today. We were treated with even stronger winds than yesterday, about 50 – 70 knots/hr, rendering any plans for field work impossible. Instead, we worked to identify the species we captured on video and with the dredge. Ricardo Aguilar, our director of research, has been an invaluable source of information in this process; he is truly a walking encyclopedia of marine species!
