Picture of the Day for
Today was another beautiful Antarctic day—temperatures around -15ºC with only light breezes. A new snow fall overnight and through out the day there was a continuous fall of “diamond dust” (fine grained ice crystals floating through the air).
It was another busy day at ice
I thought you might enjoy this image of the river of ice. This is a lead in the ice. A lead is a space between two ice floes. In this case the lead is freezing over. When we arrived at this station the water was open. Today just 3 days late, it is frozen solid. We could almost walk on it.
