cruise diary, day 3: 18 Aug 2007

Leave Port of Vancouver Dock on Columbia River to collect water samples in the Columbia River before the Confluent with the Willamette River (station 2, cast 5), the Willamette River before the Confluent with the Columbia River (station 3, cast 6), after the Confluent of Columbia and Willamette River. (station 4, cast 7) and in the Columbia River at Columbia City (station 5, cast 8). A grab sediment sample (very sandy) was also collected at station 5. Finished sampling and arrived in Rainier Dock in the afternoon, just in time before it started raining (Mike got rather wet finishing the Bacterial Production incubations on the deck!).
