Heading to sea

Heading to sea

I hold down the bow as we set out to sea. We’re recovering deep water seismometers (1000-6000 m depths) in the southern section of the array– around the Gorda ridge and Mendocino triple junction. Now it’s time for lunch!

    How long do you go out for and how far? How’s the food?

    • 6 days. I don’t know the exact distance but I will try to post a map of the seismometer locations soon. The food is good– salad bar, fruit platters, pancakes to order at breakfast; I am a little worried that I’ll have to change to a bigger notch on my belt by the time I make it off this boat.

    Ooh! What is your GPS location? Any sweet sea surface maps of Gorda/Mendocino TJ?
