I don’t have much to write about, but I thought I would post a bunch of pictures Mike & I have taken recently.  Our time on the ice is running short – we are scheduled to depart for New Zealand in 2 weeks on February 19th.

Above & below:  Emperor penguin on the Ross Ice Shelf.  White Island behind.

    I may be interested in using the picture of the arrival of the American Tern for a brochure for our ocean engineering program. Do you have the rights to that photo? Have you put it in the public domain or would you be willing to release it for our use? Thanks!
