MCMURDO STATION, ANTARCTICA– We’ve just returned from 2 weeks at Bay of Sails, where we were deploying SCINI to look at iceberg scours on the seafloor and the destruction, and recovery, of benthic communities there. All our high-tech science and engineering was supported out of the most primitive of camps. With just 6 of us, we had one shared operations and cooking tent, and 4 small backpacking tents for sleeping. These short vignettes of our activities give a sense of camp life outside of the intense work zone. (Music courtesy of Wayne Grim.)
