Picture of the Day for 2 September 2002

The last storm and associated ocean swell broke up the ice in this region, so after looking for a floe to locate our third and final process station we decided to work on a series of small floes.  Today we spent the day quite productively working on a flow that allowed us to establish a mini process station.  Divers were able to collect krill and water samples; the ice team cored the floe and took snow samples.  The floe was big enough to allow us to remain here for at least one more day and we will continue to work here through 3 September.  This photo of the day shows the ice teams working to the left and right of the divers.  The divers deployed off of the Zodiac that was craned onto the ice.  Photo by Dan Costa.
