Today, let’s meet James, Russ, Veit, Leighton, Dave, Neil and John! They are technicians for the Natural Environment Research Council and are on board to take care of every scientific instrument during this cruise. They are in charge of their deployment and maintenance; they ensure the good functioning of the equipment and smooth data acquisition. They look after the ship measuring instruments, the computer system and are real gentlemen!
Without them, no scientific work at sea is possible … at all!
