After Site U1372 was abandoned the ship arrived at the new Site U1373 (approved alternate Site LOUI-6A) in the late afternoon. The first U1372 site meeting was held at noon and the Sedimentology and Paleontology lab groups presented the results of their shipboard investigations and analyses. Presentations from all other lab groups are about to follow in the next days. At midnight, the New Year was greeted by the traditional bell ringing ceremony on the ships bow.
