Week 2 (June 18-22)Happy belated Summer Solstice! If you were in Tallahassee, you might have attended the solstice floating lantern launch at The All Saints Hop Yard Wednesday night. I missed it, but I did see a screening of “The Big Fix” Thursday night, which is all about the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. They had some footage of a sampling instrument being lowered into the Gulf, and it happened to be the same instrument (CTD rosette) that gathered the data we are currently analyzing in the lab!

I made a lot of progress (with Nico’s constant guidance) on using the MATLAB software to graph data from May’s Pelican cruise. Data from other recent cruises (Bellows and Weatherbird) has also been obtained, and we’ve started to process those numbers. If things go well, we should have some good “pictures” of DeSoto Canyon. See you later!
