I'm busy getting gear ready for a trip out to sea. Friday week I'm heading out to the Chatham Rise on the Tangaroa Very excited but nervous as well! There is a group of Scientists checking the moorings they have out there.
This is an interesting area with the Chatham Rise being a dividing line between the Sub-Antarctic waters to the south and the Sub-tropical waters to the north. I've already ordered my sea sick tablets- Paihia Bombs have been recommended (had to ring the Paihia Pharmacy for these!)
Reading up all about Sediment traps in the meantime as well- more to come on this!
