Re: batten the hatches: NBP returns to open ocean

sorry for the forwards, but thought this was worth relaying. I'll
try to take some pictures of the crossing. Could get exciting!

Hello all,

Just a quick note to remind you that we will be departing the smooth
existence of ice protected sailing sometime tomorrow, Feb 15 and will
again be subject to the large swells of the southern ocean. So if
you value what you have sitting on your desk, tie it down. If you
need assistance with any tie downs, please feel free to consult with
any of the RPSC techs. Please doublecheck any liquids and things in
hoods and fridges.

We should finish with CTD/mooring/ice coring in the morning tomorrow
and will then head north and west to the site for the big mooring, at
roughly 66 S, 129 W.

Cheers and Happy Valentines Day!

  1. We've been using to track the surface height in your area. Although its a bit general, it gives a nice image on the global wave models page to infer what you will be facing. Looks like a couple of good churners coming out from between the Horn and Good Hope over the next few days. (We've been watching it to see when they will call the Maverick's Surf Contest and one of the kiddos suggested we look up your forecast - smarty-pants!)
