Herbertson

This site, south of the Cove, is where the Herbertson Glacier meets the Ross Sea.

 

Anoxic pits happen all along the coast. Notice the pile of dead scallops in the low part of the seafloor here.

Herbertson sediments resemble Downstream Delta sediments in their size composition. This makes some sense, if you remember that a glacier is essentially a frozen river...
