At Sea with the Bold: Hurry Up and Wait

2008 September 30
Two staff members, Margot Perez-Sullivan and Margaret Ford, joined nine environmental scientists and the crew of EPA’s Ocean Survey Vessel (OSV) Bold to document science and research in action. Read the blog posts by Margot Perez-Sullivan from our San Francisco office to get an in-depth look at some of what’s involved in protecting our waters.

Day 2 (9.6.08):

It’s about 5 pm and our Chris arrived, but unfortunately, the rumors are true – eel grass is keeping us here! We’re all really anxious to get going.

I’m told a diver has been booked for early morning to get beneath the ship and unclog the cooling intakes before we push off. Hopefully this delay won’t slow down the survey.

We all want to get going and start the sampling! VIDEO: Day of waiting.
