Just when you thought I had stopped talking about my trip to Antarctica, the fabulous Nick Roden puts up another collection of videos from our trip (see above). The footage is beautiful and Steve Rintoul’s interview eloquent and poignant. Go on, you’ve got time to have a look. If you have a good eye you can see a couple of redheads whizzing around the CTD. Yes, we work fast!
From my office at the CSIRO in Hobart where I am currently working, the Aurora Australis is docked but a stone’s throw away. I’m so tempted to hide on board in the hope that I will be taken back to the frozen continent. There is much talk of field work in the tropics at the moment. Me, I prefer the big freeze.
