        Studying the Antarctic Sea Floor

        In this video segment adapted from WomenInAntarctica.com, ecologist Stacy Kim describes her interest in studying living things that inhabit the seafloor beneath Antarctica's icy surface. Dr. Kim talks about her experiences diving in the frigid but clear waters and expresses her passion for working in a relatively simple and undisturbed ecosystem. She also describes a remotely operated recording and mapping vehicle called SCINI that opens up areas of the seafloor that are inaccessible to human divers.
