I have been aboard the R/V F.G. Walton smith now for 10 days. It has been a wild experience for me and my team here from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Through it all we have had some solid days of collecting microstructure profiles which seems to contain some very promising results; we wish to explain with the aid of turbulence how the observed frontal submesoscale dynamics is maintained.
I have met some very interesting scientists, all who love scientific discovery and are all grateful for a platform such as this afforded us by CARTHE which allows such close collaboration and scientific advancement under one roof.
I have seen some beautiful days, soulful sunsets and dolphins! But most of all I can’t wait to get back on land to my lovely wife, Andrea!
High seas and a productive phase 3 which should be officially starting on February 3, 2016.
