How long will you be at Palmer this trip?
When collecting specimens of algae or other substances what do you collect them in to bring them to the surface without damaging them?
This is not a question. I was doing some random research this evening, wondering how you all were faring (post-Tsunami warnings), and I found this information. I am so very impressed!
Amsler Island (64°45.8'S 64°05.2'W / 64.7633°S 64.0867°W? / -64.7633; -64.0867) is located off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. It is named after American marine biologists Charles (Chuck) and Margaret (Maggie) Amsler of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The island is a triangular rocky plot of granite land approximately 1.3 miles (2.1 km) long and 0.6-mile (0.97 km) wide at its widest point. It was once thought to be part of a larger island known as Anvers Island because the gap between the islands was covered by the Marr Ice Piedmont. Rapid recession of the ice revealed this as a separate island in 2004. The United States Board on Geographic Names chose this name in 2007 in recognition of the Amslers' three decades of research in the Anvers Island area. Amsler Island was the original site of the United States Antarctic Program research base Palmer Station from 1965 until the current station approximately one-half mile away was constructed in 1968.
What a pleasure it is to find your website, having had it shared with us by a relative, Anne Gallagher, of one of your colleagues, a marine biologist currently doing research. My small class of second and third grade (gifted) students are delighted to read your recent account and have the ability to ask questions of you. These questions soon will follow.
Thank you so much for providing such an engaging, informative website.
Hi my name is Matthew I live in Arlington Heights IL. I was wondering if you have seen the emperor penguin because I am studying it. Have a cool time researching.
Hi I'm Madison and I go to greenbrier school in arlington heights IL. I was wondering, have you ever heard a Chinstrap penguin say anything? I'm learning about them. Have you even seen one? They are said to be arguably the most beautiful penguin. If you didn't see them or hear them, do you know anything about them?
What do you eat for breakfast? Is it fun out there? Do kids send you emails ALL the time? Did you jump off a 5 star cruise? Do you like to send back all the emails you get? Anyway, I hope you have a good time there.
Thank u for answering my questions. I did a presentation on Gentoo penguins today. Has fall started in Antarctica yet? Will you be leaving soon?
I didn't know that chinstrap penguins were that rare. Thanks for writing back!
Thank you for the response. I look forward to writing to you soon.
have you ever seen an Emperor penguin?
