Students cleaning the science pod SF03A

This science pod was cut loose from the Axial Base Shallow Profiler mooring on Sunday morning and was throughly cleaned by an eager group of students. The growth visible on the pod comes after just one year in the water, and since many of the instruments on the pod require unobstructed intake lines for sampling, the pods must be replaced yearly.
