One of the most important parts of going to sea is planning. That includes what we will do at sea to achieve our science objectives, but also what we need to pack and take with us. Once we depart, there is no turning back!
Across the country, participating laboratories have packed up and shipped all of the research supplies that will be needed for the cruise. These items are now en route to Seattle for mobilization, starting on September 14.
Mobilization is the period of time we get to load and set up the ship according to our needs for this cruise. We will be posting updates during mobilization later this week. But for now, we wanted just to post a few pictures of shipments heading out to Seattle for the cruise.
