Falkor: Thanks for watching, part 2

We are all happy to be home, but had a great time doing science at sea on the Falkor. In the remaining hours of our T-Beam cruise, we were able to put together a video using one of our favourite songs: Tassie Whalers by The Overlanders (Pete’s uncle is one of the members!). When not working, we were also hard at … Read More

Revelle: Breaking undersea waves make you a fish sandwich

The giant subsurface waves the T-team are studying are triggered thousands of kilometers away. After beaming through the Southern Ocean, the waves break against the continental slope, mixing the deep ocean. But, like bath-time with a hyperactive toddler and an especially slippery rubber ducky, these waves occasionally slosh up and over the edge of the tub. In the relatively shallow waters … Read More

Falkor: Stormy weather

With most of our field work on the RV Falkor located in the middle of the Tasman Sea, we have had our fair share of rough weather. We were able to hunker down (or escape) the biggest storms that rolled through, but sometimes we had to stop collecting data for a few hours. Below is footage of one time we … Read More

Revelle: Thanks for Watching!

We’re thrilled to be back at port in Hobart after a productive and successful 25 days at sea. We deployed a whopping 15 moorings in 10 days and managed to recover two moorings to re-deploy number 16 elsewhere. Years of planning have made this month of work in Tasmania possible and we’re thrilled that almost everything went off without a … Read More
