For the past few days we have been breaking ice for LSSL that has been shooting seismic. After meeting heavy ice conditions, with a lot of ridges and multi-year ice, on the last seismic line, the plan was changed to head west into more manageable ice. For the last few hours we have done coring and taking a CTD. Now we are waiting for the ice station to finish up and come back onboard. Due to fog, the ice stations were placed on a floe next to the ship, and not the normal distance (15nm-20nm) away from the ship. The weather today has been cloudy with a lot of fog.
