More than 1250 meter of core has now been opened. More than 25.000 sediment samples have been taken. Sampling of the sediment still continues steadily! The amazing discoveries also still continue…such as the finding of this huge concretion (with a diameter of many cm's) in a sediment core….
Most of the objects we find are much smaller...
More and more of our time is now devoted to discussion of the results...
....and report writing in what is called the scientist's office. Two months from now, a summary of our initial results will be made public and we need to make sure that we get everything written up before we leave for home at the end of next week.
But because of the good progress we’ve made so far, we’re getting a 3.5 hour break today! For the day shift, that means we can see the city of Bremen during the day for the first time!
