Antarctic Adventure

A research team from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) hikes along a lava ridge in Antarctica during an expedition to study how the volcanic landscape formed and has changed. From left, marine chemist Mark Kurz leads the group toward a site where they will collect samples; MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Andrea Burke has her rock hammer ready; science writer Hugh Powell takes notes for the Polar Discovery website; and geologist Adam Soule has just taken a picture of the patterned ground beneath their feet. This is one of 12 images in the 2011 WHOI wall calendar, which is available for purchase at the WHOI Exhibit Center website. (Photo by Chris Linder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
