We’re back in the west (or east, depending on which way you look at things). The 2nd leg of my part of the cruise has begun. The internet has returned. The Sun’s made an appearance for the first time in a couple of weeks… And begun setting and rising. Nights are becoming night. We’ve left behind the calm winds and seas of the LSU group’s survey area and found ourselves in some sort of perpetual choppy water. Science “plans” are consequently in constant flux. Welcome to the Antarctic!
