Recently, his research has led him Antarctica. He and a bunch of other scientists are currently on an icebreaker ship, studying several of the big ice shelves that are melting at an alarming rate. [Note: He is NOT on either of the icebreakers that were stuck earlier this year. Just FYI.] They are looking at the sea floor and water column for any clues as to what is causing the ice to melt so quickly - it will take months to analyze the data they are collecting, so no answers yet! But what I do have are some really incredibly cool pictures to share.

Ice shelf (I think the Totten).
Hubby looking slightly scruffy
The scruffiness continues. Note the "Lysts on the Lake" jousting shirt he's sporting. JOUSTING IN ANTARCTICA, FTW!!!!
These are all Adele's penguins.
They look cold!
So incredibly beautiful.
