Objective Continue exploring a lead previously worked by Deschamps and Lais. Secondary objective was to collect survey data of tannic tunnel at 1st tee downstream from Emerald.
Logistics Single scooter each with third scooter in tow. Double stage.
Bottom Time 70 min
Maximum Depth 148
Results Discovered tannic water just past first tee to the left. After further inspection, tannic water was observed to be syphoning into the left-side tunnel from the right (usually tannic) tunnel. Primary and secondary objective aborted. Just prior to the dive, John Rose stated that the sinks to the south were all tannic. It appears that the tannic water is moving north up through the system. Proceeded to meet OC team of McKinlay and Koritz at the Black Abyss and assist, however they had not returned from their dive at that time.
