Survey 2

Even though wind was forecast, the weather remained good for visual survey through the morning and into the early afternoon. The visual team got a good workout on the data logging program and GIS displays, but did not see any beaked whales nor many dolphins. Nor did the acoustic team hear them. We will continue to survey in this area for one more day as weather in the Alboran Sea looks like it will be windy by the time we get there, but we anticipate transiting before too long.
