I have been uploading my Palmer Station videos to YouTube. On the settings (the small gear on the bottom right side of the viewing screen) select HD for the best quality.
|Fishing for science on a Sunday morning.|
|We caught 14 Corrie fish.|
|They will be reproduced in this lab during the winter.|
|Later that same day I caught a ride with the divers who dropped me off at seal filled Torgensen Island.|
|It was just me and about 200 fur seals.|
|They weren't too pleased that I woke them from their Sunday afternoon nap. While some just opened an eye when I walked by some barked.|
Really cool rock formations.
|Torgensen Island is only about a five minute ride from Palmer Station.|
|An island to myself - an old Antarctic explorer.|
|I tried not to disturb them but there were so many it was difficult to navigate around them.|
|The island is full of jagged peaks like this. In the two hours I was here I walked around the island twice with a few traverses over hills. Without the packed snow it would be almost impossible to walk around.|
|Palmer Station in the middle.|
|A Weddell seal - rare for these parts.|
|Okay - I'll leave.|
|A fine science and dive team from UAB. Thanks for the ride!|
