The Antarctic Research and Supply Vessel (ARSV) the Laurence M. Gould returned back to Punta Arenas, Chile, on Sunday December 11. It's always such a sight to see the carefully choreographed procedures for releasing the ship from the new pier. Much work was accomplished to get everything ready for the return trip. People on the ship are already missed by those remaining on Palmer Station.
One of the returning passengers included Frigate Lieutenant don Thomas Gutierrez - a naval observer from the Argentinean navy, a fellow passenger and friend.
Have a safe journey home!!
Growing up watching nature documentaries, I find myself now immersed in nature's splendor. As an ecologist I study how ecosystems function. Here I share with you my love of doing research in Antarctica - a place of sheer beauty
