Day 6

Day 6 (92° 29.194 W, 29° 06.873 N): The R/V Cape Hatteras with scientists and crew began their long steam to the transects off the mouth of the Atchafalaya around 1300, arriving near the first transect around 0200. Everyone was very excited to see if there was much difference between the southwest pass erodability and flood deposits. Being juxtaposed next to the ECU crew in the lab inevitably a Rucker Park style rivalry has erupted over whose blog is better However I digress; Kyle and Preston worked diligently on the aforementioned Atchafalaya sites, and keep collecting sediments and data for further review and analysis.
