We found the western end if the hypoxic zone along the K and S transects last night and are returning eastward. Most of the day will be spent transiting. A low pressure system kicked up the seas a little last night, and it’s been a bit sloppy this morning, but easing. We are going to return to a few stations for microbial sampling (took samples again on the J line in a bit of a squall), and we need to pick up additional box cores as well.
