Today, we woke up bright and early again for another chance to go to the ice. Unfortunately, not only we were cancelled again due to weather before we left the hotel, but we were cancelled through the weekend with the next attempt planned for Monday! With the whole weekend to burn, we too the bus again…This time out to Sumner, on the coast just 45 minutes away from Christchurch by bus.
I am traveling with Kevin from my lab (left) along with the field team of Professor Anne Todgham(right) from UC Davis. Professor Todgham is PI on another antarctic project looking at physiology of antarctic fishes.
