End of Quarter Comments

As the school year draws to a close, ERIS students are preparing for an exploratory sampling mission at the ERIS site on June 5th and 6th. Sediment and water samples will be taken as well as a CDT cast, a handheld temperature/light/pressure probe cast, and a hydrophone cast. The data collected on this sampling will enable students to determine the subsurface conditions at the ERIS site and design a suitable station box accordingly. 

Additionally, students are preparing to hand off the work they have done this quarter to the next group of incoming students. Research, plans, and designs performed this quarter will be cataloged for a smooth transition.

ERIS student leadership will give a final presentation to UW School of Oceanography administration on June 11th to present the work that has been done this quarter and is planned for the future.
