Yesterday we uploaded data from the seafloor geodesy site “Area2” and recovered SUZI.  She brought along many new friends.  After a good scrubbing, she was packed way.  Next time she goes for a swim, she’ll have anti-fouling paint to avoid becoming a home to hundreds of barnacles.


clockwise from upper right: SUZI approaches the ship.  SUZI lifted aboard with the crane (propulsion unit on deck already). The base covered with barnacles. Closeup of the barnacles.
