Due to the delay in retrieving the mooring, all work for the full station has been delayed. Most of the scientific crew has been working through the night. I got up at 5 am to help Amanda Chaulk to collect water samples from the rosette to analyse for mercury at different depths. Unfortunately, we do not have a chance to send out a zodiac to collect surface water before we move on; the profile is therefore incomplete. We aimed at collecting another profile in the next few days.
We have a rendezvous with the Louis St. Laurent Icebreaker today and we had a stock-up. All the scientists helped out to move 20kgs of potatoes, flour, onions, milk etc. for 2 hours. Everyone’s arms and back were sore.
