#AntarticLog: To sea we go!

Posted by Shane Hanlon

And now for something completely different. #AntarcticLog heads to the deep sea, where carbon sinks, where the sea is black, and where the tiny submersible Alvin — able to carry three people — will soon be shining its light on unseen territory. 

I’m grateful to AGU for supporting my comics at sea, and to the science team, ship crew, and Alvin group that make up the team I’m thrilled to be part of. 

Follow the Alvin Science Verification Expedition at  and on social media @WHOI and #Alvin6500. I’ll be posting comics here, @doodlebugkry, and @iwasakidSTEAM
