Reviewed likely chief scientist assignments and ship schedules for 2013.

Ballard request:  CIET discussed and supported the streaming of the 2013 Atlantis cruise.  A great opportunity for outreach that should be fun.
Discussed issues on whether or not we can use the A frame, since it is for Alvin.  Options for doing it over the starboard side.  Key thing is that we need a AHC winch.  TRM, bringing it on board, etc.  Do not get damage it sustained last year.    Will they allow us to the use the A frame?   Brainstorming on different ways to fix lines with MDEA. Matt Heintz will come out LDEO.
Action Itme:  email Matt in the new year.  What is decided ahead of time.  Ship a heave comp senator with starboard winch.
Called a cruise meeting conference call in Feb/March.
Opportunity to sample, Would there be a chance to put in regular labs. Chief scientist to double check on this. Where would sample handling happen.
All were reminded about applying for foreign clearances.
