Day 13: “Queen B can do whatever she wants.”

 

Fun on the reef!Hi Jessenia again!

Today we revisited most of our reefs again, but this time we placed sediment traps at the center of our reefs (42, 34, 33, 26, and 14). We also worked alongside green team and placed four HOBOS along side with our sediment traps. We had a little difficulty with our first reef we visited which was reef 42. Mainly because we forgot to take our coordinates for each transect, so we had to look for a bright pink marker that was placed at each center transect. We found the first marker but we had trouble finding the second and third marker we were swimming back and forth looking for it for an hour and a half! It might have been because the marker got loose or fish ate it. So we had to set up two new transects and take new coordinates. But after we finished with reef 42 the rest of the reefs we visited only took at most ten minutes to place the sediment traps and the HOBOS. Overall it was still a successful day!

 

Miranda here reporting from Team Red Seas!

Hard to believe
It’s the start of week 3…
This morning comprised
Of some memorable lines
And Dr. Hunter’s quick wit
Was this header’s perfect fit.
(Oh what a wonderful way
To begin Harry Potter’s Birthday!)
Team Red Seas deployed
With Team Blue..oh joy!
To the north, we went
A place Red had yet to tread
To live-boat reef fifty
A technique that is quite thrifty
So Team Blue could collect
Algae cages they had left.
We headed to reef forty-four
So Team Blue could explore,
While Team Red Seas finalized
Collecting data and tying ties.
We had lunch at the Sand Bar
Our best lunch by far!
Before hitting up reef twenty-five
For Team Blue’s second dive.
We went back to the dorms
Then back to class to be informed
Of the importance of sharks–
Another possible way to make our mark.
Hope you all were pleased
With this quick diary of me!

Good Morning, World!
