We worked all the day in the area near The Bjørne Fjord.
The launch an retreival of autonomus acoustic platform and the test of adjustments of flotation of the multisampler were satisfactory.
Sampling routines for fish and plankton on board was tested included the addition of a system for traceability of the collected biological material. Two deep-water trawl hauls were used to this proposal. Some practical difficulties were found. Alternative solutions will be developed.
The people from Telenor worked with the new antenna. Some adjustments are still necessary. The system are not ready yet.
Other practical tasks and discussions:
Improving the connection of the ship reference system and metadata system.
Labeling system (hardware-sofware). Some tests were carried out. The work will continue tomorrow.
