Happy St. Valentine’s Day to all our blog readers! Love is most definitely in the air aboard RRS James Cook, with kissing albatrosses photographed off the starboard side and a seriously smoochy menu lovingly prepared by our chef and galley staff (see photos). We have also, finally, been loving the weather. Clear blue skies and light winds have given the first uninterrupted day of CTD operations for a day, and the Southampton VMP has been in the water for two deep casts.
