On-board Diary: The Van Veen dredge
Author: Silvia Garcia, marine scientist
Date: October 13, 2012
Although it was still not looking good based on the waves and currents, we headed out early to work, but this time, we used the Van Veen dredge, not the ROV. Our plan was to use the dredge to collect samples from different points around Seco de los Olivos. We got as far as 14 dredges before it became impossible to continue, so we stopped and returned back to port.
