Karen Pelletreau and Peter Horne (both members of Maria Vernet's phytoplankton
group, Scripps Inst. of Oceanography, La Jolla CA) are setting up 24 hour
incubations of their water samples to gain a measure of how productive the
phytoplankton are at the different sampling stations, and from different
depths in the water column.
One of the perks for the night crew is some beautiful sunsets.
