A rather belated comment :-[

If the log says something vague like:
Feb - Alaska to sea

In the future, would you please check the log page for Feb 28 (or earlier if necessary) and note lat and long or any other position info so we can note whether the ship is still in Arctic waters (for our purposes north of 55 N in the Pacific and north of 45 N in the Atlantic).

Thanks!



We (scientists and mods) are just learning how to do this ourselves, so your patience is appreciated ;)
