And it begins. I set off on my adventure to Antarctica today!
Over the next 6 weeks, I hope to learn as much as possible on (1) how to do science in polar environments, (2) the biology of Antarctic organisms (from microscopic to macroscopic!), and (3) how climate-driven changes in the Southern ocean will affect these organisms - past, present, and future.
I'll be making periodic blog-posts to highlight my journey. If you want more frequent updates, please follow me on twitter @jwfchu or the hashtag #CHUisCOLD.
50-lbs duffle #1 is packed with camera gear and 50-lbs duffle #2 is everything else! First stop Seattle, then Dallas, then Santiago, then Punta Arenas, Chile, then the Drake Passage. Final destination -> Palmer Station, Anvers Island, Antarctica!
