Daily Science Report: Thursday January 19th

By Mike Cheadle
We completed the ship multibeam & magnetometer survey of our next site (site A) & our reserve site (survey time: 10 hrs- ~60m resolution bathymetry). Below is an example which we collected over Pito Seamount as we arrived on site on Monday. We launched Sentry dive 3 (dive 420) at 10:00am which will complete around breakfast time tomorrow and extend our Sentry map to near the bottom of Pito Deep. Finally we picked a 900m vertical traverse through near continuous rock outcrop, from the maps produced by the first two Sentry dives, for our first Jason dive.
