Luc, Zoë and John are on their way back to Taiwan, with the goal of  recovering the remaining five IWISE moorings---but it looks like super-typhoon Nanmadol may alter the best-laid plans.  The fully developed tropical storm is projected to pass just east of Kaohsiung on Monday---the scheduled ship loading day.  Should be interesting!  Though our main goal is to recover the moorings, it may be hard to pass up an opportunity to sample in the cold wake of the typhoon if the ship schedule permits.
