Edging eastwards

Our steam back towards Shag Rocks Passage continued today, meaning that we should arrive back in the science area around 5 a.m. tomorrow. Having observed some of the tracer (dye) in the Argentine Basin at the start of the cruise, we took the opportunity this morning to do a station on the continental slope to the east of the Falkland Islands. This should enable us to understand more clearly the mixing pathways across the ridge. All the scientists on board were relieved to be working again after a frustrating few days and are looking forward to getting some more exciting results in the coming days.
