After the crews last full day of science, Tuesday, we spent some time surveying an eddy. Heading up that mission, Peter Gaube, one of the scientists on board. Gaube has been researching eddies for several years and has put together this cool video to explain the important role of the eddy in ocean life.
While the survey was being conducted we were headed straight into 35 knot winds. Mix that with some big waves and you have the best water ride ever! Here is a look at what filming is like in these conditions and why you should always cover your camera.
