Wave conditions were occasionally too high to deploy the CTD Rosette, but it has given is a chance to make progress on cruise documentation. Each person who sampled something is responsible for documenting the sampled property! Some of the CTD students are documenting oxygen/nitrogen isotopes, for example. Noon today brought clear, calm seas and we were excited to get back to CTD Rosette deployment.    Here is a photo expressing our excitement at the CTD console: As you can see, we have a bit of an art gallery above the console. Some of the field scientists (i.e. the inorganic carbon, organic carbon, and CFC groups) frequently visit us to inspect the depth of the chlorophyll maximum, oxygen minimum, and mixed layer.
