Caption: 'working the line' along one side of the Sea Ice work area during the JR240 ICEBell Cruise in the Bellingshaussen Sea. From the left we have the geographic base station used to reference all data. Ice penetrating Radar. snow depth recording and in the distance an 'ice pit' and shallow ice core. The science of the JR240 ICEBell Cruise gives us vital data in the quest to fully understanding sea ice production ond variability. This work is essential for interpreting satelite images which look at the vast areas of sea ice in the polar regions.
