Following a weekend of rest to conserve resources, the 3 ESPs deployed 1 month ago in the western GOM worked flawlessly today (Jun 2, 2014) and just flipped up their latest results to the WHOI server...

ESP-1 (don) near NERACOOS B and ESP-2 (jake) in Casco Bay both showed a significant increase in the NA1 A. fundyense probe signal, back up from late last week, with the estimates off the "hab" array coming in at 367 cells/Liter and almost 500 cells/L, respectively.

ESP-3 (dennis) is also consistently indicating about 100-150 cells/Liter off Pemaquid Point.

The MUD2 probe (1 of 4 Pseudo-nitzschia probes on the array) has shown a few positive hits recently, but was blank for today's run at all 3 sites.

Meanwhile, we're watching the situation closely and may mount another ground truth survey on Tioga before our scheduled cruise of June 14-18.

Please stay tuned as we will provide timely results to you each day when the latest data are transferred to the server and analyzed.
