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.
