Weather Hold

Today, 26 May 2015, marks our third science-less day here on the Revelle. Last night brought the largest swells we’ve seen yet (at times, >10m), and it was a workout just to stay in our bunks. At breakfast this morning there was discussion of this storm being the largest low pressure system on the planet right now, with low measuring pressures akin to Hurricane Katrina.

It appears we are on the back edge of it now, and hope to finally start the seismic line tomorrow or Thursday.
