This was our first day on our testcruise and we have brought a lot of new equipment and software. Our schedule before departure was packed with meetings with people on land. Luckily the departure was postponed to 1800 hours, 3 hours later then first planned.
For the Data management and sampling group it was important to get started early with the routines for biological sampling and data-flow. A pelagic trawl is scheduled at 0500 hours tomorrow.
Today we also looked at:
- The ships reference system and how this can be implemented in a overall metadata system.
- File handling, backup, synchronisation with land and a predefined folder structure.
- On-board information system
- Training and information on cruise
