Listening to Antarctica is a daily web diary, including audio clips (RealMedia) of ambient sounds and conversations onboard the Aurora Australis, a research vessel currently on its way to the Australian Antarctic bases. Margot Foster's next port of call is Casey Base.

Not quite as boring as advertised.

I dig the ambient noises, such as with the March 09 entry. The conversations less so, apart from those that seem to be scripted and communicate a little more.

Be sure to also check out Dan Grossman's recent reports from Antarctica at Boston's public radio station - WBUR.

And anyone interested in Antarctica will be interested in seeing Eliot Porter's photographs, as well as reading Peter Matthiessen's End of the Earth : Voyaging to Antarctica .
