New and better (?) for 2009

Hi friends, family, and other interested parties,

This is a new blog which I will update from the NBP , as I did on a previous research cruise in 2007. As of now, the plan is to touch on both the science and daily life on board. Likely changes include:

1. Less frequent updates -- I've got to write a thesis in the next year or so, so I have a target of updating every other day...
2. Interactivity -- unless the email burden becomes too great, comments will be forwarded to my email on board. I'm hoping everyone will contribute (short) thoughts and/or questions which will direct future posts.
3. Newslinks and a slideshow from 2007 -- taking advantage of new blogger features!
4. (Hopefully) real-time interaction with high schoolers -- if I can get a plan together in the next week or so.

Looking forward to hearing from you!



  1. Happy New Year, Chris! Keep the updates flowing for those of us longing to be part of an Antarctic adventure.

  2. Best of luck!Keep warm!Looking forward to blog.
