2022 PAP expedition preparations

April, 2022

18 scientists and engineers joined the crew already onboard to prepare the James Cook and all our equipment for our annual cruise.

Our first day was spent working in our cabins while waiting for our Covid test results to return. It’s an opportunity to revisit our methods, our sampling plans and any final preparation for the cruise.

The equipment is coming aboard now ready for us to set up while we’re alongside. Here is the PAP buoy being craned aboard photographed by Jon Campbell.
