Finished North St George's Channel rMCZ!

At the end of day shift we finished all of the planned sampling on our first rMCZ. The grab samples in the southern part of the site contained mostly coarse sediment and shells with some mud. Now we've got a few hours steaming south towards the next rMCZ which is North of Celtic Deep.
