Popping a CORK, and Sunrise Watching (redux...)


Currently, we're sailing for Yinazao (formerly Blue Moon) Seamount after a partly successful endeavor to un-CORK (i.e. remove a CORK-type fluid flow and analysis instrument package) from Site 1200 on the South Chamorro Seamount, that had been there for 15+ years since it was installed on ODP Leg 195. 

Erster Einsatz: South Chamorro Seamount

"Korken an Deck"

We're Underway! 2 m Heave, Flying Fish, and a Conference of Anguish

At 5 AM local time the JR un-moored from our harbor in Guam, the tug pulled it away from the dock, and we set out for our first site, ODP Leg 195 Site 1200, to un-CORK that instrumented hole and prepare it for newer/better instrumentation.
