Land ahoy!

After spending two successful weeks surveying the Pobie Bank Reef, we finished the planned acoustic work in block four on Wednesday evening, before starting our journey back to Aberdeen.  We’ve really enjoyed finding out more about the seabed within the survey area, but are now looking forward to the prospect of getting back to dry land!

We were welcomed back into Aberdeen harbour by a friendly seal and a lovely sunny evening. We’d like to thank the scientists from Marine Scotland Science and the great crew on board the Scotia for all of their help over the last few weeks!
