Happy Holidays from UF/IFAS, by way of Antarctica!
Happy Holidays from the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, by way of Antarctica! Globe-trotting Gators Brent Christner, left, an associate professor with the UF/IFAS microbiology and cell science department, and Christina Davis, right, a UF/IFAS College of Agricultural and Life Sciences doctoral candidate with the department, pose at the scientific facility McMurdo Station, near the Antarctic coast – Sunday, Dec. 16, 2018. The two are part of a research team that will travel 600 miles inland to sample and explore Mercer Subglacial Lake, a liquid-water lake beneath the Antarctic ice sheet. Their work is part of a multi-institution project known as Subglacial Antarctic Lakes Scientific Access, or SALSA, funded by the National Science Foundation.
