The research vessels Revelle and Falkor are in Hobart! Now it’s time to start unloading all of the containers of equipment that were sent from San Diego in November! TTIDE Leg 1 science crew are in Hobart and working hard before their departure date on January 9.
After packing up three huge containers and hundreds of pounds of equipment, the last container was filled with only inches to spare this morning! Hard work by a crack team and we were very happy when it was done! The next time we will see this equipment is in Hobart in January 2015.
The Schmidt Ocean Institute’s Mark Schrope recently wrote an article called “Tracking the Tasman Sea’s Hidden Tide” about the T-Beam experiment on the RV Falkor! Check it out here — http://www.schmidtocean.org/story/show/2963
