The dive station

The dive station looks to be a flurry of activity in an otherwise barren landscape. In the photo, one diver, attached to the safety line, has already entered the water. The second diver with a red and black drysuit waits while the Dive Supervisor prepares his gear. The second dive tender strides across the ice, while the polar bear observer stands at watch on the left side of the photo. Image courtesy of Arctic Exploration 2002, Quing Zhang, NOAA/OER.
