Hi mates,
Here's the latest ESP update as ESPjake worked hard over the past weekend...
ESPjake was recently deployed on ESP-3 mooring near UMOOS/NERACOOS "I"
in eastern Maine coastal waters. After returning weak signals of about
100 cells/L or less since deployment on June 18, Jake just returned
significant NA1 probe spot intensities on the hab array estimated to be
about 300 cells/L on Friday, June 26, 600 cells/L on Saturday, June 27,
and just returned results at about 300 cells/L earlier today (Sunday,
June 28).
The MUD2 probe spots, targeting various potentially toxic
Pseudo-nitzschia species, was also positive on the hab array.
R/V Tioga is reserved for July 6-9 and will respond by visiting the
mooring site to collect ground truth samples and also sample both
inshore and offshore of the mooring site to provide a broader
perspective of the bloom conditions in the area.
Meanwhile, stay tuned and keep an eye on results from ESPjake at:
