I am a physical oceanographer working for the British Antarctic Survey. Also very keen on wildlife.

Catching up on the trip so far (we are now almost at Rothera). We unexpectedly (well, it wasn't planned, but delays are no surprise) had a day free in the Falklands before sailing, while the ship was alongside at FIPASS. A walk out to Gypsy Cove and back via the Narrows was appreciated by everyone, especially the new guys who hadn't seen penguins before.
The Dolphins (Commerson's and Peale's) were less co-operative, but still good to see:
A physical oceanographer at the British Antarctic Survey. Also have a strong sideline in wildlife, especially birds and cetaceans. This blog is in a personal capacity so will feature considerably more wildlife than physics.
