WE JUST FINISHED THE LAST STATION!!!!!!!! The final station of the cruise is done and we are steaming back to Barbados. There is still a lot of work and clean up that needs to be done but the hard part is over. Everyone is pretty psyched about how things went and emotions are high. Another successful cruise for the books.
Once we get back we have to process a lot of samples and data. This can take a really long time, some times years to get through it all. When you are out here you try and do all you can and take all the samples and data possible because who knows when you or someone else will be back. I have a lot of work ahead of me myself. Collected a lot of samples and data. Next goal is to make sense of it all and figure out what is going on out here. Try and answer some of these questions. Even come up with some new ones.
But for now I am going to relax!!!!
