Adelie penguins walk right by photographers on their way to a crack in the sea ice. Peggy Malloy is THE person you want to be friends with if you are going out into the field with decent food. She is responsible for the field camp food stores. People who are out in the field need to be supplied with food. LOTS of food! Ice Stories correspondent Kelly Carroll reports from a storm at Tango 1 Camp, a remote camp deep in the Transantarctic Mountains. In this live webcast, we look deeper into the film 'Ice People.' We speak with noted geologists Allan Ashworth and Adam Lewis, and filmmaker Anne Aghion in our San Francisco studio. In this program Ice Stories crew member Ron Hipschman speaks with Paul Ponganis, who studies emperor penguins. Hear from marine biologist Dr. Stacy Kim, who uses a small camera-equipped remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to investigate the bottom-dwelling creatures under the sea ice. The air is so dry here at McMurdo that anything that gets charged, stays charged. Moist air quickly discharges objects because the water in the air picks up charge from an object and quickly flies away, taking charges with it. This does not happen here. We are constantly getting shocks from our clothing, our bedding and when we exit vehicles. They are many ways that people commute to work in the morning — some by car, or bus, or maybe walk or ride a bike. Getting to work in Antarctica can be just as varied. One of them is by helicopter. This footage was shot during a trip to Westhaven Nunatak, Antarctica. Dr. Marvin Speece, professor of geophysical engineering at Montana Tech and co-Principal Investigator of the Offshore New Harbor Project, discusses how their expedition collects scientific data.
