Live Blogging From Antarctica


Adrian Glover, deep-sea scientist and polychaete expert, is live blogging his experience aboard the RRS James Clark Ross in Antarctica. Posts will cover the expedition with occasional rants about his research including that on whale falls communities. I have to say the British know how to conduct science in style

Nevertheless, this being the RRS James Clark Ross on a Saturday night, dinner was shirt and tie, with cocktails in the bar before dinner, wine on the tables and fine silver to eat with. With teamwork, we made rounds of bloody marys, possibly not the easiest thing to do when anything you set on the table (worcester sauce, tabasco) is liable to fly horizontally at any minute.

Although is trip still doesn’t compare to our joint experience on a Japanese Research Vessel for two weeks in the middle of the Pacific. His gallery is here.
