Picture of the Day for 6 September 2002

The LMG continues to operate in the same general area, though on a different floe from yesterday. The Seal Team was finally able to work on another crabeater last evening. Although all their satellite tags were deployed early in the cruise, they are still able to make physiological studies. The Ice Team recruited help from others on a beautifully clear day and collected many meters of core, and the divers completed two dives. Everyone is pleased with the amount of work we're accomplishing, but we're starting to think about port calls and heading home.  Today's picture of the day shows the dive team collecting krill and diving to characterize the under ice habitat of krill.
