Skuas at the penguin colony wait for a chance to snatch a chick. Shots of Adelie Penguins at the Cape Royds colony. The POLENET project takes scientists all over the continent to install equipment, and to get there they leave from Williams Field, an airport near McMurdo Station. Willy Field has a runway equipped to handle the largest aircraft that fly into Antarctica. However, this runway is different; there's no pavement here - this runway is made of ice.
POLENET's Stephanie Konfal gives us a look at Willy Field.
Solomon helps remote field camps with food. Today we found him making up one of the most important foods - gorp (often called "trail mix"). Check out the cool tool he uses to mix the tasty treat. Adelie penguins contemplate the water near a photographer at a crack in the ice. Photographer watches Adelie penguins file past him and take to the water in a crack in the sea ice. Adelie penguins walk right by photographers on their way to a crack in the sea ice. Peggy Malloy is THE person you want to be friends with if you are going out into the field with decent food. She is responsible for the field camp food stores. People who are out in the field need to be supplied with food. LOTS of food! Ice Stories correspondent Kelly Carroll reports from a storm at Tango 1 Camp, a remote camp deep in the Transantarctic Mountains. The air is so dry here at McMurdo that anything that gets charged, stays charged. Moist air quickly discharges objects because the water in the air picks up charge from an object and quickly flies away, taking charges with it. This does not happen here. We are constantly getting shocks from our clothing, our bedding and when we exit vehicles.
