The RRS James Clark Ross is on science cruise JR16006 to the Arctic and during this work period will be spending some time outside of the communications satellite that I use to update this web page. More information on this can be found HERE
Having moved across to the west by a few degrees this has meant that the comms satellite has risen slightly further above the horizon and is at a wopping 3.2º, which has given us a good link today. I am anticipating the link dropping out on Friday or Saturday and then it will be several weeks before it is restored.
A few days ago I posted a picture of George taking a sounding, this is the results being posted on the sounding board on the Bridge..
The weather today has not been great, with fog throughout most of the day and this evening visibility is down to a few hundred metres at best, so there is little to report on. The science work has continued throughout and is going according to the schedule.
One of our science team is writing a blog and it can be viewed HERE.
