Two months can be a long time. On this cruise the days seemed to pass in minutes and so much happened. Until last night we sampled 1000 m sediment. We made a way of about 9950 NM. The last miles to Wellington we are compared by a lot of birds, especially the albatross likes to swim near the ship during the station work.
Teamwork on board
The work on board - you see it on the picture - is successfully finished and the teamwork was great. In the next ten years, you will read a lot of the research results in the scientific publications around the world. I hope the samples will answer a lot of the questions the scientists on board have asked in the past.
We like to thank everyone who helped to realize the website. We thank the readers and hope you found some interesting information about this cruise.
So, bye bye and have a good time!Ulrich Breitsprecher & Abhinav Gogoi
