Arctic Expedition - Day 8 - Teachers at the North Pole


Our current location and status can be discerned from the above image.

Day 8 gave the science team a little precipitation, 30-knot winds, and rough seas.

Today's workload was a near-exact carbon copy of yesterday's--multicore, piston core, gravity core--with the only difference the rougher seas and a different sampling station.

This afternoon the sun made a brief appearance. The keyword here is brief.

We are currently underway, headed east on the Beaufort Sea, to our next sampling station.

Look for a new video tomorrow. Today was spent re-editing Day 7's video to give it more context to the outside world.
