2017-2018 Weddel Seals - Mawson & Davis Adare Seas - POI and Fun Finds


:laughing::laughing::laughing::rofl: oops…sorry…being serious now :zipper_mouth_face:


Another sea cat-amaran :laughing:


I love this map…the Antarctica Alps :upside_down_face: :smile:

Abominable snowman bowling . . . skimming snowballs perhaps :thinking:


9 posts were split to a new topic: 2017-2018 Weddell Seals – Flying Penguins and birds in the burgs!


This station is split up into smaller camps to the right and to the left of the poly…I haven’t had time to figure out which station it is. Any suggestions?


That’s the station I posted (zoomed out) earlier. It stretches for quite some distance - for different experiments.



Yes …different tile, different poly position…but same station.


Okay… Gotcha! :wink:


Did you identify which research station it was @Jim7? I have looked a little on the list of stations, but could not immediately see anything similar.


No I haven’t, Terri. Sorry.


Thanks! I will keep looking and see if I can find out.


@Jim7 do you think it could be the Halley Research Station? It has been shut down several times and moved because of cracks in the ice and in January was moved inland and then shut down. The curve of the coast sort of looks like it could be that part of the coast line. Also there is another station towards the tip of the peninsula - Rothery Research Station. The buildings we see spread out in between may be used by both research stations.?

https://www.bas.ac.uk/polar-operations/sites-and-facilities/station There is a map on this site that shows both stations as well gives us locations of the ice cracks and the movement of Halley station.


Trying to figure out which research station it is is somewhat like looking at galaxies and supernovae. The light was generated many, many, light years ago. What generated the light may no longer be there. We need a map of stations in the Mawson & Davis Adare Seas from 2010, at least based on the date on @Jim7’s map. I am wondering if @Michelle4 has a hidden map of research stations from the time period that we are searching. Perhaps she can shed some light on the situation. :thinking: :woman_teacher: :rofl:


It’s not the Halley VI station judging by the description in the linked article. That describes the station as consisting of 8 pods. This station has pods, buildings, and a slew of other items that make up the station. Must be a different station.


As @Wilms said we would need a map from earlier to show the actual timeframe. The Halley V was actually demolished in 2012, and could be what we see on our images from 2011…but I’m not sure I am in the right vicinity.




Found it: Dumont d’Urville Station
-66.663280, 140.002146


The current image on Google maps isn’t great compared to Google Earth though…some clearer shots there :wink:


Hmmm…I’m not sure…the buildings don’t match the satelite images of the two clustered sets of buildings but this would be the older pics. Are there pictures of the outbuildings way to the left of the station and further up the coast as shown on the pics above?
