First flight - Monday
AM: Subs tuned and charged for flight
PM: 1st flight /North Basin
Deepworkers: Bekah Shepard, Greg Slater
CapCom: Darlene Lim
Acoustic GPA system working well
Deepworkers able to follow contours and navigate
Observe various types of microbialites at various depths
At about 90 feet formations seem to ‘peter out’ – why?
Deepworkers map North Basin per flight plan
Lots of mud, but that fills in the map and tells us where microbialites are not.
