Weddell Sea

For the past few days we have been steaming through the Weddell Sea, stopping every now and then to do more science. Yesterday was a day of coring using the gravity corer and the box corer (a very messy task). Following the deployment of a CTD (machine to measure water Conductivity, Temperature and Depth), we were joined by some Minke whales which hung around the ship for most of the afternoon.
