Day 14 Question of the day:
Do You Guys Have a Schedule like at School on the Ship ? -Kevon Mitchell
What kind of data does the mooring lines record? -Jerome Silvels
-Onboard we schedule ourselves according to our watches or shifts, I personally wake from anywhere around 1-3 pm, sometimes get a bite to eat, or i will wait till dinner, after dinner have some free time then we have a science moment where somebody will speak and give a presentation on their field. soon after my shift starts from 8pm - 4am, and then begins the night shifts ritual of going for a soak in the hot tub on board while relaxing unwinding and gazing at the thousands of stars, then a quick shower and off to bed. So no we do not have a schedule like we do at school we have one a million times better!
-Mooring lines collect data on temperature, conductivity, depth, salinity, density, all to measure currents and obtain data on internal waves and hydraulic mixing.
