Picture of the Day for 18 August 2002

The R/V L.M. Gould and its inhabitants continued following the N.B. Palmer to our next ice processing station.  Luckily it has been an easy going ride so far.  Since we were in transient, ice sampling and diving was halted and the Penguin group started their many countless hours searching for the Adélie Penguins.  The rest of the groups tried to catch up on processing ice samples, krill counts and computer data.  As the day progressed, the scenery was scattered with glaciers of different sizes, formations and colors.  One just had to stop work, take in the beauty and realize that we are in Antarctica!  Photo by Shonna Dovel.
