Equipment Used
To recover the GEOPROBE.
The recovery of the GEOPROBE was attempted without success from the
vicinity of the M-2 mooring. The GEOPROBE is designed to be recovered by reeling
in a cable attached to a float which is designed to rise to the surface when an
acoustic release mechanism (100 kHz) attached to the GEOPROBE tripod is
activated by a signal from the recovery ship. As during Leg 4, signal commands
were sent to the acoustic release system without success but a responding signal
from the GEOPROBE indicated the tripod was inplace and probably still operable.
Recovery was then attempted by dragging the seabottom with grappling hooks.
Recovery operations were suspended until Leg 1 of Cruise 3 (1 May - 8 May 1990).
