Today was spent doing more preparations for the mooring deployments including planning where and when to drop the three moorings. We have loads of glass balls, 5 anchors that weigh more than 2000lbs, over 60 instruments, beacons, flashers, chain, shackles which all need to be organized and prepped well ahead of time.

Our high school students are keeping blogs and answering questions of the day from their class mates back home - here is Jonathan Franco's answer to the latest question "How's the food?" Jonathan's Blog: Melville-Day 2

We still had time for daily post dinner science chat - Amy and Ruth talked about mixing and internal waves, what they are and why they are important. Our plan is to have a daily science chats to talk about interesting things that are happening out here!
