Ice diving in Antarctica

Matt Brown, Danny, Terri and myself head out to cut open a dive hole in our 45cm thick sea that we have round base.  Matt chainsaws through the ice and we pluck out some huge blocks of ice opening a gateway to the underwater world below.  Matt tells us a bit about diving under the ice while Terri describes what science herself and Melissa are heading under to carry out, which relates to climate change.

Enjoy

  1. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the “City Daily Photo Blog” lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a “city” but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
