SeaWiFS: Summer in Antarctica
Provided by the SeaWiFS Project, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and ORBIMAGE
The Ross Sea has been somewhat cloud free lately, providing SeaWiFS with views such as this one from December 26, 2001. Note the deep green water; this is a highly productive part of the world'd oceans. Also note the ice gathered around McMurdo Sound. The ice is making it difficult for penguins to reach their food supply.
