Exploring cyanobacterial diversity in Antarctica Blog

Here some images from our flight from Scott base, the New Zealand Antarctic station to Lake Fryxell. We crossed the McMurdo Ice Shelf and flew passed Mt Erebus, which seemed more smoky than usual. We then entered Taylor Valley and crossed Commonwealth Glacier and landed at Lake Fryxell. Shortly after our arrival, the remaining camping gear and science equipment arrived on sling load.

I'm Anne Jungblut from the Botany Department. Join me as I head to Antarctica to study cyanobacterial diversity in ice-covered lakes of the Dry Valleys and Ross Island where already scientists on Scott's and Shakleton's expeditions made many discoveries.
