Heading for the volcano

 

Group photo Leg 1. Since starting out from Mauritius 19 days ago, we have successfully recovered 28 OBS as planned, and have accomplished additional bathymetric mapping here and there. We have kept circling the central target of our seismological campaign, the hotspot of La Réunion. Now, during the last night of Leg 1, we are heading directly towards it. The Meteor should reach this spectacular volcanic island early in the morning, where the first half of our cruise will end.
