Great work and Congratulations to the 2021 Palmer LTER field team

The COVID pandemic has been extremely challenging for field science.  Despite the challenges the Palmer LTER team was able to conduct a field expedition aboard the RV Nathaniel Palmer in November and December along the West Antarctic Peninsula. The team after almost a month in quarantine was able to anchor a great field season spanning the entire peninsula. Some pics below.
