The first DEEPEND midwater trawling cruise report is now available online here.  You will soon be able to access these reports for all of our cruises and plot their course in a composite cruise tracking map! We still have two more cruises going out this summer so come back to visit our website July 20-26 to follow along as our Texas A&M Galveston crew complete their second ichthyoplankton cruise. Our teacher at sea, Megan Ehlers and graduate student, Kendall Lord will be blogging and posting photos throughout the cruise. Then August 8-22 we will be back out on the Point Sur collecting our favorite deep-sea creatures using the midwater trawl. We will again be posting pictures, videos, and blogs during the entire cruise with the help of our teacher at sea, Alisha Stahl. This will also be our first cruise participating in the WhalesTimes’ Creep into the DEEPEND program where scientists will share their research and discoveries through email updates, photos, videos, and answer student questions! What an exciting summer!”
