As July draws to a close, it is time for me to do the unthinkable. Yes, that is right, it is nearly 100F outside and I have been trying on long underwear, fuzzy hats, and ordering new warm gloves. This time next week, that won’t seem so strange, as I will be deep in a Patagonian winter about to board a research vessel for Antarctica!
Once again I will be setting sail on the gloriously orange Nathaniel B. Palmer, an icebreaker devoted to research in the southern oceans. I will again be a “lab rat” on the zooplankton team, spending much of my time in the zooplankton lab identifying and counting zooplankton.
AND, perhaps the best part, many of the friends I made last year will be returning for this cruise

Is there anything in particular you want to know more about? If so, leave me a comment here and I will try to cover it in a future blog.
