NE Pacific Expedition Day 11

A report from Dr. M while he is at sea in the northeast Pacific. You can also follow the expedition here.

Really no update today. I am merely killing time. We are sitting 50 nautical miles off San Francisco above Pioneer Seamount. The wind is blowing a steady 50 knots, with no end in site for the next 48 hours. With the swell and whitecaps it is much too harsh to safely launch and recover any equipment, much less a multimillion dollar ROV.

Here are some clams with anemones to keep you happy (as a clam?).
