Au fond du fjord

  • Releve hydrographique 7 fevrier 2012

Very low temperatures probably got the better of the nylon rope used for the CTD casts. It broke yesterday, the probe is now on the bottom of the fjord. It is not possible to recover it, too deep (130m). Two days earlier, I did six casts at the same location, every thirty minutes, to observe the influence of tidal currents... Shattering. But scientists response is incredibly encouraging as another CTD is already considered.
