Yesterday we journeyed south to Barilari Bay (65 57' S; 64 37' W). We attempted to fly to the ice cap above us, where a team from Ohio State University is drilling an ice core. But we could never get there, because of blowing snow and low visibility. So back to the ship it was; the old story. But things are looking up. I took today's picture just a few minutes ago, at 10 pm local time. It has cleared up a lot and there is good hope that by tomorrow it will be clear. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
