A bit of high seas drama over the weekend aboard R/V Sikuliaq. Two of the first six ocean-bottom (OBEM) instruments were run over the ship's thrusters during their recovery. While the instruments can't be put to use again this cruise, at least their data loggers were recovered. Not a complete tragedy in the Shakespearian sense, but a rough day nonetheless. Follow along with Director Constable and his crew as they manage the rest of the trip down two OBEMs (but with an excellent supply of coffee): https://marineemlab.ucsd.edu/Projects/Megathrust/index.html.
