Daily greetings from … the lab

by Michelle Albinus, Claudia Thölen and Jochen Wollschläger

7:05 a.m. My first walk takes me not directly to breakfast (and to the loudly calling coffee), but to the universal lab - my cave, my playground. In the center is a large, square wooden table with laptops and protocols spread out on it. Along the walls are lab tables that house all of our equipment. During the course of the sampling station three of them will reveal to me what particles are in the water by absorbing light.

Daily greetings from … the deck

by Claudia Thölen, Jochen Wollschläger and Michelle Albinus

Every day the ship stops for two stations where we can lower our instruments into the water and take samples or measurements. In the morning after breakfast, I usually go back on deck every day to see if I can help Kai and Neeske with the CTD and the water sampler. CTD means Conductivity, Temperature & Depth.
