I am writing this just before I pull the zippers closed for my trek to the airport and then my travel home. It is another beautiful day with minimal clouds in the sky. If I could bottle the warmth and climate and bring it back with me to Connecticut, I would indeed.
We had a very successful field season with 11 hours of data recorded with the MVA. Wu-Jung, from the MIT/WHOI joint program joined us for the second week and collected 2.25 hours of DTag data (simultaneous with the MVA) and another roughly 2 hours of data of ambient sounds and echolocation clicks as dolphins swam by two omni-directional hydrophones.
We’ll be analyzing these data over the coming months and will post updates to the Dolphin Gazette or maybe even field reports as the season heads into spring.
Thanks for following along.
