Day 8 - National Science Week
In honour of National Science Week we take a group photo on the back deck with a dredge full of rocks.
Happy #NationalScienceWeek! We are a quarter of our way through our scientific voyage to the Coral Sea. Just brought up some fresh rock samples from the seafloor! #RVInvestigator #ThisIsMyLab @EarthByteGroup pic.twitter.com/S3qs4jdczr— Ben Mather (@BenRMather) August 14, 2019
Today we bagged and tagged some more basalt samples from a seamount further north. It is a real privalege to be on the RV Investigator for a month to uncover unknown secrets about the mystical submerged continent of Zealandia. That our voyage coincides nicely with National Science Week is just the cherry on the cake - or icecream on the sticky date pudding.
