The last two days have been relatively quiet and uneventful. Everyone was disappointed as the ship was overcome by fog yesterday, making the expedition to Banks Island unfeasible. Everyone was trying to finish working on their last samples and pack away equipment. The crew lowered the tower on the front deck so that the meteorological equipment can be removed. Sylvia and I wrestled with the wires, nuts and bolts on the tower for several hours. The rough sea and rain made every step so much more difficult. With Stephanie Moore’s (Dalhousie University) help, we finally got all the wires off the tower but we were completely soaked by rain. There were still several wires that ran along the starboard side of the ship that should be removed. However, by that time, we were all exhausted and it was raining hard. I have put on my last air sample for POPs today and started backing up files on the Tekran mercury vapour analyser and the Max DOAS in the OASIS shed. My camera, which was out of service because I dropped it in water, came back to life after 2 days of drying. To cheer myself up and to remember good times on Banks Island, I’ve taken the following pictures with my little souvenirs.
