A Field Trip to the Edge of the World

My friend Camilla, the marine biologist/crafter behind the blog Skrekk & Gru has agreed to share some photos from her recent field trip to the edge of the world. Yes, that's what you can call 78 degrees north: Next up is the North Pole.

This is where the Arctic Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean meet and lots of exciting things happening biology wise. The wild life is rich; seals, dolphins and polar beers who spend the winter in the area.

Camilla and her fellow scientists from all around the world were investigating the Arctic carbon cycle and the impact of plankton.
