Day 19 - November 6, 2018


It’s Election Day in the US!

Over 300 lbs. of rock were recovered from Dredge 9 this afternoon! We’re only cutting and describing representative samples. The rocks that we pull up tend to fall into certain types—with this many samples, it’s more efficient for us to group them according to general trends in phenocrysts and groundmass, rather than trying to describe everything.

We also haven’t seen that much flora and fauna in the dredges on this trip—although in the ocean we’ve seen various birds, dolphins, whales, flying fish, and squid—but we actually got some small pieces of deep sea coral in this dredge.
