Lamont Weekly Report – July 27, 2007

P.O. Box 1000, 61 Route 9W Palisades, New York 10964


- Letter from the Director


I spent Monday down in Galveston on board our research vessel Marcus G. Langseth.   She looks ready to sail to me!   Take a look at John D's magnificent pictures at:


More than 24 kilometers of hydrophone streamer are loaded on the winches, the gun umbilicals are rigged and ready, the seismics lab has more than 46 flat screen displays to bemuse the most alert watchkeeper, and the starboard bridge wing gives a wonderfully uninterrupted view of the whole of the starboard rail, working deck and A frame. So she is going to be a great research vessel.


But still there are delays. She was supposed to sail on her test cruise this week but it will not happen - we still have more Coast Guard inspections to pass.  


Congratulations are due Lamont alum Amy Clement - currently at the Rosenstiel School in Miami - she will receive the AGU McElwane award - very prestigious and very well deserved.   Congratulations Amy.


I am still waiting for things to 'slow down for the summer' - seems to happen on Morningside, but not out here…….


Except that the summer intern program is drawing to a close, so the extra shuttles running for the interns will be discontinued on Wednesday, August 1st


Another Research Life Panel session this afternoon - talking about that great favorite   - The Responsibilities of Principal Investigators. Many thanks to our own Edie Miller and Sally Odland for helping out with this along with Jim Kemp from Research Administration down town.


Have a great weekend,
