Arrived at site 4 shortly after 1pm. Site survey has begun and will probably last until late this evening. Most of the day spent reading. During the evening hours I spent time calibrating and working known samples on the auto-analyzer. Seems to be very sensitive to air bubbles in pump system. Worked out most of the issues shortly before bedtime. Coring should be underway tonight while I sleep which will mean lab activity tomorrow.
