|Ship display at 42.5ºN|
Here we are at 42.5ºN, well within the North Pacific storm track. But wind speeds are hovering around only 1-4 knots, and the sun is out. Lucky us. I guess there is some advantage to doing this section in May/June rather than March (as was done during the earlier CLIVAR occupation in 2006, and during WOCE in 1991).
