GOLF 4-3-9 Antarctica Expedition 2012



0 m above sea level

It has been a blast.  Diving in Antarctica is right up there as one of the coolest things one can do.  We finally collected our experiments at about 120 feet depth at Cape Evans Wall.  

Very much to our surprise it appeared that the lid has been pried open.  Who may have been that interested in our experiments?  A day later I did my very last dive at Arrivals Heights near Scott’s hut in McMurdo, clearly a top diving spot.

There were amazing yellow seastars, big volcano sponges and amazing ice formation, including the huge anchor ice formations, the brinicles (AKA brine channels), and overall the icy ceiling that resembles colorful thunder clouds.  I had a great dive and Rob Robbins took a bunch of really amazing photographs!
