The winner of the Question of the Day: "Why are we told not to wear cotton clothing when we go out on the ice for long periods of time?" is David Worthen of Goodman Middle school. David correctly explained that cotton clothing absorbs water. Because of the Antarctic temperatures, the water will freeze and the body will get cold as well.
As for the next Question, It's not too late:
"How does one tell a male seal from a female seal?"
Now follow our activities today as we took water and sediment samples from another ice hole.
