Day 17: 7 July 2020
We spend this day a little further north-east on the continental shelf sampling for all we are worth! In total, we have 20 stations (deployment of four CTDs, four box corers, four multi-corers, four epi-benthos sledges, and multibeam in between!) to be finished today before tonight’s transit back to the panoramic view on Iceland – a tough schedule but the weather is unbelievably nice, with sun shining and a dead calm sea! The day started again with another (or the same?) big school of pilot whales hanging around and watching us – life could be worse! Enjoy the photo show!
