Finishing our mooring operations in the Rockall Trough #EEL17

by Penny Holliday

Today we re-deployed the last of the UK OSNAP moorings in the Rockall Trough. It was raining and cold, but the seas were calm and that helped the operations go smoothly. We will be back again to recover these moorings in summer 2018.

Last night we were treated to a rather pretty sunset through a misty horizon, at the end of a day in calm and slightly damp and eerie conditions. All of this good weather we’ve been having has been really great for the mooring operations. However the forecast is looking rather "spicy" for later in the week – I knew it couldn’t last!

So here are a collection of photos from the past 2 or 3 days, giving a flavour of the work we have been doing.
