Daily Science Report: Saturday February 5th

By Mike Cheadle
Jason surfaced at just after 8am with a haul of 15 more rocks which means we now have over 300 samples on board. We specifically targeted the dike-gabbro transition and we were successful in bringing back an equal mix of gabbros and dikes. Next we carried out another short magnetometer and multibeam survey. Finally, we launched Sentry, now decorated with the Patriots logo and Nemo like eyes, at 1:30pm in the south-eastern end of site B for a 20 hour dive to look for more lower crustal gabbro outcrops. Fingers crossed that tomorrow we see a Sentry map which reveals numerous targets for us to dive on.
