Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego student Jack Pan and technicians deploy HydroScat6, an instrument to measure the optical scattering profile of light in the ocean from the surface to 200 meters (656 feet), from the deck of R/V Laurence M. Gould in the western Antarctic Peninsula. The work is part of the National Science Foundation cruise FjordEco, a 15-month project that began in November to study the dynamics of ecosystems within Antarctica's fjords, long ocean inlets bounded by steep cliffs.
