Nikki as we know her best, in her yellow waterproofs, dissecting “armatus”

Todays Highlights

Date:2. August 2004
Author:  Odd Aksel Bergstad (IMR)

Waiting for the pilot outside Aberdeen, we realized that civilization was near. The harbour is tidal and one has to line up to enter carefully through the tidal channel. And we were not alone. Inside the harbour we were directed to Regent’s Quay, a very central location, only a few steps down the hill from Princess Street. Strangely, this is like little Norway. We’re surrounded by Norwegian ships, mainly supply vessels for the North Sea oil and gas fields.

CoML and MAR-ECO banners are on the ship’s side again as in Horta, and tomorrow we’re expecting visitors and press. In the meantime, Nikki and Monty will be our guides. They’ve already made a good effort to prepare us for city life.

Monty, Nikki and our photographer David Shale, the UK contingent, will leave us tomorrow and they will be missed. We have enjoyed their company and skill, and look forward to working with them in the analysis phase of the project. Or perhaps later, on a British ship working in the mid-Atlantic?

 

Weather Conditions

Dull. Calm and hazy. We’re in the western North Sea!

 

Tomorrows expected highlights

Press conference, visits from colleagues and guests, and not least pupils from one of the schools following MAR-ECO.
