Being at sea can be especially frustrating, there are no local hardware shops to pop to, or technicians you can call out to fix your equipment, it’s all down to you. I’m really lucky, my sampling rig is about as simple as it gets, any problems are easy to fix and each day there is a lot of time when the rig isn’t being used if I needed to fix a problem. However as part of the AMT program there are a number of measures that are continuous, and far more technical, than anything I have to do. Therefore to explain about the constant struggle an underway system presents, I introduce Laura Lubelczyk from the Bigelow laboratory in Maine, in the United States.
