Comments Equipment Used: Batteries, Laptop Staff: Pilot - Mitch Bobowski This field activity is being conducted as part of the efforts to obtain baseline information prior to the potential oil impacts from the Deepwater Horizon incident. Weather conditions on the first day were overcast. This created some difficultly using the auto focus on the D1X. Thus a significant number of images are blurry or have a soft focus. Most images will be useable. Photos were taken out the tinted window of the aircraft and some color correction is needed. No Video was collected on this flight.
