1. LDEO screening procedures

LDEO instruments for screening (list as per Navy) - note one of these is an SIO instrument that we aren't recovering, but are deploying: Mostly deep instruments, all LDEO-APGs not TRMs

2. Update on M07

Looked at two positions, deep one, nearby and which site above a 1000 m.  Will talk to fisherman about this site to find location above 1000 m.  Relative desire to be as close to original location as possible.  Instrument is at 1500 m depth.  1000 contour is at limit.  Original intended location was 500 m.  As close to year 1 as possible or not.

Richard: Update us on this in two weeks
Emilie Why is M07A location in google marked at 449 m depth?

3. Chief scientists check out their list with Emilie

Chief Sci's reminded to send in their cruise objectives.

UO president and E&O - center for STEM outreach

schools and community college. Home base and coordination amongst outreach on UO campus. Are there facilities at Berkley and Earthscope that Dean can tap into?
