We are now sailing west, to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean to survey the Chain Fracture Zone. More on this in the next post. You can see our track live online on this website: http://mars.noc.ac.uk/missions/dy072. DY072 is the operation number for the current PILAB operations on the RRS Discovery. From the website you can see how much we have sailed so far and also read more about the expedition itself.
Another interesting read is the detailed blog of seismologist Prof. Mike Kendall from the University of Bristol. He is a great writer and also an amazing photographer, capturing great moments of people at work, of the ship and the beautiful sunrise and sunsets.
