A few months in the life of a polar scientist

This talk will be devoted to the circumnavigation expedition I participated in 2016-2017. This was a rather unusual cruise - on top of ocean and atmosphere observations we did along the way, we stopped at several sub-Antarctic islands and even parked at a glacier to explore the under-water world. In my talk, I will share a lot of images from the expedition, tell a little bit about the science we did, and also show you what living aboard an icebreaker looks like.
