We woke up to white McMurdo, a beautiful white layer was covering the station and the observatory hill. Because of the low visibility, the flights to the ice edge were cancelled again, I’m group 6 and so far, only groups 1 and 2 have gone to the ice edge – I am really hoping the weather will help the flights in the upcoming days.
The day was filled with lab work again, and in the afternoon I went to the ice hole in front of the station next to the jetty. It was great to be out again! There was a layer of fresh snow on top of the ice, and the view from the ice was stunning!
We got more pteropods for our experiments, but unfortunately there was only one amphipod in the trap, and we have two groups needing more amphipods.
