Project Blog

The sun came out today so I took some photos. We are in Andvord Bay
where most of our sampling is happening. It is a fjord of sorts and very
sheltered from the open ocean, so life aboard is very comfortable these
days. Several glaciers descend into the water and the bay is littered
with icebergs and bergy bits. If you want to read more about the project
I am a part of, check out the official blog:

back in Punta ArenasThe

I find myself again at the end of the world - Punta Arenas, Chile. For the next 44 days or so I will be working for a Scripps Institution Of Oceanography group aboard the research vessel Laurence M. Gould. Wednesday we sail south to The Antarctic Peninsula. We will spend most of our time in a lovely little fjord called Andvord Bay.
