ex hurricane OPHELIA

The E1 data buoy recorded the arrival and magnitude of the ex hurricane OPHELIA yesterday. A short, sharp drop in pressure was accompanied by a short, sharp rise in temperature and followed by high winds and huge waves – the maximum wave height measured was in excess of 11m. It will be interesting to see if we find any unusual plankton in next week’s samples.
