Braving the cold at Slaughter Beach!
Yesterday our team set off for our first AUV operation of the new year with an expedition down to Slaughter Beach DE in support of our new Sea Grant project on benthic hardbottoms in the bay. In a word it was cold! The first day of AUV operations is always challenging especially at a new site as the team figures out what works and what doesn't. We managed to get in a few mission lines before our frozen limbs told us it was time to go. Here are some highlights from the day. Many thanks to everyone involved!http://gallery.me.com/arttrembanis#100053
