The primary source for clean, sample quality seawater is provided
by a 80 gpm, continuous flow pump with the discharge located on
the port and starboard side aft 01 deck. Clean seawater is also available in the
bottle lab from the MIDAS system discharge at 60 gpm. All hose fitting
are standard ¾" female. The R/V Pelican has a saltwater
manifold available for scientific use upon request.
Saltwater is also available from the sinks in the wetlab and drylab.
However, this water comes from a storage tank onboard and is not
recommended for sampling.
