Southeast Greenland Cruise, Aug-Oct, 1996

This cruise was a collaborative effort, done together with the Danish Lithosphere Center (co-PI's Hans Christian Larsen, Trine Dahl-Jensen, and John Hopper).  The U.S. PI's were myself (then at WHOI), Peter Kelemen, Graham Kent, and Bob Detrick.  This was a long cruise -- 45 days -- featuring some of the most spectacular sights I've ever seen at sea:  coastal mountains and glaciers, whales, the Aurora borealis, and (as you'll see below) icebergs galore.  (As a side note, this cruise also had some of the worst weather I've ever experienced at sea... but that's Greenland in October for you.)
