An Adélie penguin rests on an iceberg in Marguerite Bay, Western Antarctic Peninsula. This photo was taken during the NSF-funded Palmer Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program cruise in January 2015. The cruise is conducted aboard the Antarctic Research and Support Vessel Laurence M. Gould. Our research group is conducting studies of marine vertebrates and their responses to rapid climate change in the Western Antarctic Peninsula region.<br />
