20 Jan AM – Quadrant vs. Quadrat

This past week has been very stressful, but at the same time lots of fun. My 4th dive ever after being certified was a night dive, and the bioluminescence was amazing. I kept waving my hands under water just to see the little creatures lighting up. It was one of the best experiences of my life, despite the confusion and the initial scare. During that dive, I feel like I went through my air faster than ever before because of the initial freaking out about the darkness.

Another important thing that happened this week was getting data with Rich and Roxane. The project we are doing requires us to dive down and lay out a 12 meter transect at 8 to 10 meters deep. This means that we’ve been diving basically every day. I never thought I could get this exhausted, but it was so worth it. There is a great feeling of accomplishment when I see the pictures of the work we have been doing and getting data points.
