Back to Wellington
17 Feb 2011
We made it back to Wellington without any troubles and after a night on the town celebrating our arrival back to port, we spent the 17th packing and preparing our equipment and supplies for shipment back to the U.S. Fortunately, the weather was absolutely perfect for our arrival and unloading. Days like that are few and far between in Wellington, so we appreciated it!
We have had a fun and very successful series of cruises in New Zealand, and it is bit sad that our fieldwork has concluded. But, I'm sure we all look forward to spending some time working on data at home... and then returning for a meeting at some point in the future!
Again, I need to thank the Captain and crew of the Revelle and the Kaharoa who helped make our fieldwork safe, enjoyable, and productive. Also, I want to thank all the scientists and volunteers who worked long hours and in some tough conditions to generate some great samples and data.
