Germany: Research Vessel Polarstern on the Expedition PS 104 (Punta Arenas – Punta Arenas)

This is another great cover from the german Research Vessel and Icebreaker Polarstern. The Expedition PS 104 was planned to start on 6th February 2017 from Punta Arenas to the Amundsen Sea (Antarctica) and then return back to Punta Arenas on 18th March 2017. The main research programme of the Expedition PS 104 was aimed to use the so called MeBo seabed drilling system to drill a series of up to 70 m long sediment cores from the oldest to the youngest sedimentary sequences of the Amundsen Sea Embayment shelf.
