Previous Blog: Antarctica Travels
While you all wait with bated breath for my state-of-the-science DNAPL post (which I am working on, promise), I thought I would introduce my old blog. In 2006, I was fortunate enough to be invited by one of my Middlebury College professors to accompany her on a NSF-funded research cruise in the Weddell Sea. We spent nearly 6 weeks on the RV Nathaniel B. Palmer and it was the experience of a lifetime. The landscape in Antarctica is unlike any I have ever seen; the lack of flora and fauna was noticeable and unsettling, even when replaced by the regal beauty of ice, rock and sea. This blog is in reverse chronological order, which is inconvenient for review, but it starts out with pretty pictures. I posted to the blog by emailing my parents, who then copied and pasted (and perhaps edited grammar). We did not have “internet” on the ship but instead sent and received email several times during a 24-hour period.
Thanks for stopping by!
