Under the Ice in Antarctica: VIDEO


Near McMurdo Station in Antarctica there is an observation tube installed below the ice. This video was shot last month by research diver, musician, and filmmaker Henry Kaiser.

According to Kaiser, "Anyone can climb down the ladder and watch us divers at work under the ice. The snow was bulldozed off of the sea ice around the observation tube, creating a very light environment; which seems to have attracted an enormous population of larval and juvenile ice fish that form great clouds around the tube."
