RV Plymouth Quest’s last research trip of the year to the Western Channel Observatory L4 sampling station marks a record 50 trips in the last 12 months.

Tim Smyth, Head of Science - Marine biogeochemistry and ocean observations, said,

“We always hope to make in excess of 45 trips but to achieve a success rate in sampling 50 out of a possible 51 times is phenomenal and a real testament to the dedication of the crew and scientists who go out in all weathers in the name of science."
