Picture of the Day for 17 August 2002

The L.M. Gould completed its final day at Process Station #1 before the R/V Palmer helps move on to our new study site. Although this has been a productive site, very few krill have been found either in the water, under the ice, or in stomach samples collected from predators. As we heard the R/V Palmer was likely to be late to help move us to our new process station, the seal team decided to give us a head start.  Photo by Brett Pickering.
