Lawrence M. Gould

Sunny Outlook

On her first day in Antarctica, WHOI research associate Emelia Deforce photographed the R/V Laurence M. Gould docked on Anvers Island, which is home to the U.S. Antarctic Program’s Palmer Station (64° 46’S, 64° 03’W). Adrenaline was running high through Deforce and a team of researchers that day as they prepared to work on the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) cruise to study climate warming around the western Antarctic Peninsula. WHOI adjunct scientist Hugh Ducklow led the research mission that set out to look at changes in organisms including marine microbial communities, phytoplankton, zooplankton, penguins, and whale populations in January 2013.
