We conducted mapping operations throughout the day and overnight while in transit to Pascagoula, Mississippi, for necessary repairs to the port motor. The onboard team kept busy with multiple live interactions. These included an interaction with a professional development workshop at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland, hosted by mapping lead Mike White and science co-lead Adam Skarke, as well as a presentation to the SEA Lab in Redondo Beach, California, hosted by science co-lead Daniel Wagner, Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration and Research Engineer Dan Rogers, and expedition web coordinator Amy Bowman. The onboard video team performed the behind-the-scenes work that goes into these valuable outreach events.
