Preparing for upcoming cruise

Susan and I are now in the midst of preparing for the cruise in September. We conducted a couple of Skype phone calls with our collaborators at JAMSTEC and helped prepare a plankton pump deployment plan for the cruise. We brought our two pumps to the manufacturer (McLane) for servicing and ordered mooring gear from weights and releases to floats and strobes. We are learning so much in our Japanese class, too. Dewa mata (see you later).
