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


If the “curved lines” you are referring to Cagey, are what I’ve highlight in yellow, then no, they are cracks in the shifting snow/ice. What I’ve circled in Red “might” be a seal or something :thinking: or just another crack beginning to form :wink:


Not sure that what you have circled in red are seals… zoom in to +3 and scroll til the black dot is just above the scale.

Too big for a seal, methinks :thinking:


Yes, I think it’s just cracking in the snow/ice :slight_smile:

Anyone have a guess as to what all of this blue debris could be? One piece looks like a whale. It looks like twisted metal.

Hey, anyone good at jigsaw puzzles??

Hi Elle_Kaye,
Welcome to Tomnod Forum - we’d like for you to write some about yourself in the Nodder Introductions thread (http://forum.tomnod.com/t/nodder-introductions/11).

Your question: Do you mean within the red/pink polygon? I don’t see it. I only see snow that is formed by the wind, and the black dots might be stones. Tell us what you see.


I agree with @Shaul. I don’t see anything in the poly, however if you zoom out to minus 4 you will see a lot of ice and snow formations on a lacy background. Sometimes you will get different colors in natural (as opposed to manmade structures and debris) due to satellite imaging and general light reflections. You can get a feel for a wide range of objects both natural and manmade by clicking on links in forum member posts. Hope this helps.:slightly_smiling_face:


:wink: :slightly_smiling_face:

I think @cageycat laid around a little too long during the snowstorm. Only her eyes, nose and whiskers are sticking out. :smile_cat:


Oh, so that’s where I got stuck… @Doug4 @Jim7 @Shaul @Steven_Cowburn would you mind digging me outta here? wiggle wiggle – nope, not helping! freeeeeezzzing!


Maybe dr. LaRue will be able to help you? :slight_smile:


Wiggle harder! I’m not going out in that cold! :stuck_out_tongue:



Oh shoot-- no tears, or they will freeze to my face!!


Two different locations in one area 19 PM41 PM


:rofl: That’s exactly what an 18-yr old guy told my daughter-in-law when they had a collision several nights ago. My DIL asked the “kid” if he was going to get out to survey the damage and he replied, “No way! It’s cold out there!” :face_with_raised_eyebrow: To be fair, it was only about 5F/-15Cc and the wind was blowing like crazy. But still… refusing to get out of your vehicle after an accident? Kids! :roll_eyes:


not sure what it is …40 PM


I’ve seen some of these at other research stations. They’re probably storage tanks - better on rock than on flexible ice.
