Sunset, Aurora, and Cool Geology in the Davis Strait

Now that the 2015 Davis Strait/Arctic Circle Ocean Acidification research cruise has come to an end, we would like to share a few extraordinary photographs with you. There was much beauty in the scenery, sunset, and night sky from the deck of the R/V Atlantis. Dr. Lisa Robbins took an amazing photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) from the ship.

There was also time for a snapshot of Lisa from the deck of the ship near Baffin Bay, Canada with some amazing geology in the background.

Geologic features of the Canadian shoreline near Baffin Bay are seen in the background behind Lisa Robbins on the deck of the R/V Atlantis.
