Colorado is now surrounded by the Pacific Ocean?

What's the circular feature on the water surface just off the left wing?

We are measuring the out gassing of various gasses from 100 ft at 200 knots. We have to climb to 300 ft to turn on a reverse course. The 100 ft legs are 30 minutes long. The canisters on the tips are instrument pylons that hold Particle measuring probes. The plane and a new crew are still at Xmas Island. Where the research mission is still going on

Kip ~ Sounds like you are doing well. With the flights and a little bone fishing mixed in, not too bad at all. Did you get much weater from the huricane that passed to your north recently?

Ok, maybe I got the shirt part wrong...but it was a test at low altitude.
