After a long autumn quarter, we finally finished our annual fall surveys.  This enormous body of work (95 transects in about 75 dives) could not have been accomplished without the help of a small army of volunteers and interns.

Thanks to Annie Thomson, Aaron Galloway, Derek Smith, Noel Larson, Rhoda Green, Autumn Turner, Gavin Brackett, Ryan McLaughlin, Ryan Knowles, Jackie O’Mara, Megan Cook, Pema Kitaeff and Alex Lowe.

And thanks especially to Tim Dwyer, inexhaustible dive buddy extraordinaire.

That’s our planning whiteboard.  All those purple boxes are transects that needed doing, and the green text are the dates we completed the transects.  They’re finally all full – whew!
