More than 10 tests successfully run…

… before we spot a plume of sediment obscuring part of one of the video windows… Waves were still small (30cm) for the water depth (2m), but after checking our data on the central monitor in the control room, we also discover that one of the drag sensors appears to have failed right at the start of one of our tests. We decided to take a break and lower the water level to inspect the test section – but it all looks remarkably as we had left it, so on we go: more tests with ever higher waves in both 1m water depth (a well known experience for the plants) and 2m water depth (here comes the storm surge condition…)…

Watch the plants sway in the gentle waves (little do they know what awaits them…):
