vacation time is over, at least for me. I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things at the lab, and should soon be back to blogging regularly.
Some tidbits to be getting on with:
- the Times Online has an article comparing the recent Russian stunt of dropping a flag on the North Pole to the history of land claims in Antarctica before the Antarctic Treaty was established;
- Halley's Cometh has a great new post with stunning photographs of Antarctica at dawn, and a truly breathtaking video of an Antarctic storm;
- two moderate earthquakes have occurred near Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic stations managed by the observatory I work at (records to be posted soon): Magnitude 5.2 KERGUELEN ISLANDS REGION , July 28, 2007 ; Magnitude 5.9 - SOUTH OF AUSTRALIA , August 3, 2007 .
