A dead penguin, a dead seal, and a calibration mission
We ran a mission today to get data that allows us to calibrate our navigation instruments so we can quantify the error between the robot’s estimate of its pose and the ground truth (which we obtain by tracking the robot with a radio beacon and marking its GPS position). We also saw some obstacles in the limno-hut region where the fiber had gotten snagged last year in our new visualizer.
A dead penguin (between the two rocks). Emma had seen it some time back and told us about it. We stopped on our way to work today to see it.
We also saw a seal skeleton. Myself and Chris.

A thin layer of ice freezes over the melt-hole every night that needs to be cleared before we can run any missions. Emma helped us chip ice from the melt-hole today morning. Emma was clearly delighted to do this.
