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 hourís, 3 hourís 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 hourís 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
