Welcome to the blog of our great Antarctic adventure. Two of us have been going through a crazy amount of preparation prior to our two and a half month deployment to McMurdo station, Antarctica for which we leave tomorrow. There is still much to do but all of our equipment has slowly (and finally) shown up. We embark on a minimum five day journey that will have us end at 78 degrees south, the farthest south we can dive bellow the ice.
Please follow along as we show what it is like to arrive into the middle of Antarctic winter. We’ll update photos and stories over the next two months of what our research is like.
