Daily Science Report: Monday February 6th

Jason returned at 8am with 37 more gabbro samples and a miniaturized football. Chris German even offered us a hashtag: #nomore(expletive deleted)gabbros. We are currently cutting and describing these new samples, as Sentry flys below us making another map. We also carried out another multibeam and magnetometer survey between the Jason and Sentry dives to extend our approximately 60m resolution map of the whole of Pito Deep. With only 5 more days left, changeover times are beginning to be more important in terms of maximizing on bottom time.
