Riviresco Field Trip

Well the other day we headed out for Ocean Engineering to do a field trip aboard the mighty (yeah right) Riviresco. We were planning to do some depth, current and salinity measurements.

10 points to whoever can tell me what this does and how much its worth? (Matt your not allowed to answer)

Configuring the devices, there were some serious technical issues involved with this mostly regarding lack of software. Oh well, better luck next time. At least we weren't trying to configure them on the deck of a research vessel holding posistion in rough weather.

Out on the Riviresco. This is the little sister to the Bluefin which, with any luck, i'll be spending a week on next semester.

The Safe Astoria from the seaward side. This gives a much bigger impression of the size of the platform.
