Picture of the Day for 22 August 2002

Most of the day was spent setting up our new ice station, Rodan. The krill team made diving holes in the ice and the ice team drilled an ice transect. We continue to experience extremely cold but sunny weather. The temperature remained around -20 to -25C, with wind chill down to -50C. Due to extreme cold temperatures at our latest ice station, marine science technician, Mo Hodgins, spends her afternoon de- icing the main A-frame block, while the seal and penguin researchers played a game of soccer on the ice with some friends.
