Green Antarctica...and the first day of sampling

Posted by Valeria Bers, AWI, Germany on 7 February 2013

In the first days here at Carlini station, the weather did not permit us to go out with the zodiacs - the wind was just too strong. But as soon as th the sun came out, I went for a walk around the station and was amazed, how green the island gets in the summer, when the snow had melted away.

This day was just another day in the row of stormy days that we are experiencing since I don't know when. But even without working in the cove, it gets hardly boring here.

Bright day, interrupted work, and eclipse of the sun

Yesterday was one of the brightest days that I have ever experienced at Jubany. There was virtually no wind and the sea surface was very smooth. A day to go to the outer parts of Potter Cove. We could arrange that and off we went for a RoxAnn survey.

A perfect day, a perfect start

Let’s start with yesterday. It was one of those days, when you have to be ready for departure all the time - the weather is just good enough that you think you can get out, but bad enough that they don’t want to let you out. [blog in English and Spanish]

Con viento en contra - The wind against me

Muchos dependemos de la navegación y el buceo para llevar a cabo nuestras actividades. Desde que llegamos a Jubany en diciembre, entendí que el viento es uno de los mayores condicionantes a la hora de trabajar en la caleta. [blog in Spanish and English]
