Abstract

With supplies of food and fuel set to run out within days, scientists at the Russian Antarctic station at Mirny received some welcome relief on June 13. The National Science Foundation's icebreaking vessel, Nathaniel B. Palmer, delivered four tons of emergency food supplies to the 38 researchers wintering over at the station, which has not seen a supply ship in nearly a year.
