    I ll link to a few movies that would be impossible to make in lower latitudes I ll start with a time lapse I made of the Sun as we were stopped for a sampling station at the North Pole The video covers about 6 5 Read Journal 30 November 2015 GEOTRACES Cinema Water Sampling Seal s Eye View of CTD Cast TODAY S JOURNAL One of the major aspects of the 2015 US Arctic GEOTRACES Expedition was to obtain water samples for various trace element and nutrient testing The most significant tool that oceanographers use for collecting water samples from different depths is a CTD sampling rosette Several of my journals touched upon this process including entries from 11 August and 12 August In the first video I wore a GoPro on my hard hat to show the process of getting the GEOTRACES rosette ready for a cast The crew works to clear an open pool behind the Read Journal 19 November 2015 GEOTRACES Cinema Ice Sampling Kyle Dilliplaine drills an ice core at the North Pole TODAY S JOURNAL In today s GEOTRACES Cinema installment I have a few videos showing some of the aspects of ice sampling that we conducted on our expedition The first video shows many of the steps taken to characterize the sea ice at each ice station It was filmed at the North Pole on 7 September and I wrote about the process in my 8 September journal Another type of ice that scientists were interested in is called dirty ice In short this is ice that formed in shallow muddy water and later drifted out into the ice pack of Read Journal 4 November 2015 GEOTRACES Cinema Ice Life A polar bear leaps across a bit of open water among ice floes TODAY S JOURNAL One aspect of the expedition that I particularly enjoyed was looking for polar wildlife I was pretty busy most days with my PolarTREC duties but tried to carve out at least an hour each day to soak in the scenery and watch for wildlife As we got farther and farther north sightings of living things off the ship grew more and more rare but there was always a possibility of picking up another sighting The day before we arrived at the North Pole 4 September we crossed polar bear tracks at 88 63 N 179 88 Read Journal 1 27 October 2015 GEOTRACES Cinema Ice Breaking TODAY S JOURNAL I m happy to say that I m about adjusted back to real life at least as much as I ever am I still have a box of stuff on the way that I mailed from Dutch Harbor but otherwise the signs of my long expedition have vanished from home For scientists there is one more step to accomplish on Healy unloading all of their gear and shipping it home from Seattle once the icebreaker returns to port next week School is busy as always but a bit
