During survey operations at Barkley Canyon, water made its way into the ROPOS lighting pod. Resulting repair work delayed the start of the site survey and may affect the TRF deployment schedule at Middle Valley. The Lodbrog has been informed and will be kept advised.
Scattered rocks were observed at Barkley Canyon TRF site, but they are not viewed as problematic.
Muddy seabed overlying hard clay with rock shards were observed in the Post-Lay Inspection and Burial (PLIB) trench. The soft sediment layer is estimated to be less than 10cm deep.
