140823 UCSC

High stratus over night with no wetness on the ground in the morning.  Arrived at 11 am to ISB greenhouse and there was about 20 mL of clear sample in the bottle.  Also the funnel/rain collector had about 3 mL in in it.  I kept the sample from fog collector and discarded the “rain” sample.  Cleaned the collector by rinsing in place.  Attached new bottle.  Reset program.

ISB Observations 8/22

Jeremiah went to the ISB roof this morning. A 75mL sample (S-UCSC-140822) was present, and a blank (B-UCSC-140822) was taken after cleaning the collector. The collector is in very good condition. The sample collected this morning contained a thin layer of what looked like dirt or soil at the bottom.
