For his birthday, Oleg was allowed to start the heat flow probe. (The chief was keeping an eye on his)
This is what we are looking at in the laboratory when our heat flow probe is in de sediments.
Full action for the first core onboard: while the sawing team takes a first look at the sediments, the others clean and prepare the piston corer for the next station.
Be careful when you are working on the desk : a stormy sea can take you by surprise and offer you a big salt-water shower!
Too windy weather forced us to change our plan: we left the Gulf of Lion and we are now sailing towards the Balearic margin.
More than 30 black pilot whales escorted us until our next heat-flow station.
Fluids are regularly extracted along each section of all cores.
First heat-flow measurements in the Gulf of Lion. The probe is put into water.
