Hi from Manzanillo. By now most scientists have arrived from a variety of destinations around the world. We are now busy unpacking boxes with equipment and supplies, and setting up the labs on Atlantis, our home for the next few weeks. We have all made detailed plans of what we are going to accomplish on our expedition, but when you go to sea you always have to be prepared to face some adversary. Today we learned that there is a tropical storm in the East Pacific that is predicted to develop into a hurricane, and that currently slowly moves towards our field site. We hope that it will have passed the field site by the time we arrive there, but still the storm will affect the sea state on our transit to the field site, and might even delay our departure from Manzanillo. So, stay tuned for further updates.
