    Fuel 

    Taking on about 200,000 gallons of bunker diesel from the fuel truck takes most of a day!

    We are a delayed leaving by a couple of days; but, as soon as the coring systems and the winch are ready, we’ll be off.

      That’s a good supply! And plenty of ballast. Our old diesel boats could ?only? carry about 130,000 when fully outfitted for patrol. Dad

    Coring equipment… 

    This is a bit of a beauty shot of our new line for the piston core. Stay tuned, this line is quite important to our work on this cruise.

    Everything seems big on a ship! 

    Check out this big wrench, and the big blue block. The block is what helps us run rope and wire over the side to deploy our coring equipment!

    Tengchong Hotsprings, Yunnan Province China 

    Stay tuned – I leave January 2nd for two weeks of reconnaisance and preliminary sampling of hotsprings in southwestern China!  I will be traveling with a team of researchers from UNLV, NAU, Montana State, San Francisco State, Ohio University, and the University of Georgia. We’ll be working with Chinese collaborators from Tongji University, China University of Geosciences – Beijing, and Yunnan University.

    This is a highly-collaborative project with the aim of conducting integrated research into the geochemistry and geobiology of terrestrial hydrothermal systems.
