Second Day at Sea

October 16th, 2011 · No Comments · 2011 - R/V Wecoma, 2011 Crew, Deployment, LDEO, SIO

Yesterday, we deployed three seismometers, two “Abalones” from Scripps Institute of Oceanography with the trawl resistant design and one from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) called “Cascadian” which also has an absolute pressure gauge and hydrophone. These seismometers are generally deployed deeper along the continental margin.
