The field team is working hard in the Seychelles. Since their departure from the US on 28 May, the team has recovered and re-deployed most of our instrumentation and started some smaller-scale process studies. So far most of the data looks good, although we did lose some data from a faulty connection on one of the instruments (par for the course for field work). The team has been battling really rough seas (>7 ft swells!) meaning lots of green faces. Yet, despite the weather and adverse conditions, they are accomplishing a ton! The remaining team members will return in a week marking the end of this trip.
