I did a lot of waiting around today. There was no morning snorkel this morning because the student who were dive certified went out on a scuba dive, so I walked around the island and collected plastic. I did finally get to see a spotted eagle ray jump. Clark saw it go under the jetty and we followed it on shore for at least 20 minutes before it jumped.
when low tide finally rolled around my research group went out and collected some sediment cores from shark bay. we spent the rest of the day looking for invertebrates in the sediment using the l;ab microscopes.
