The team traveled daily to seal haul-outs and worked on the sea ice outside of McMurdo Station, Antarctica. While on the ice, the team located the seals, weighed them, measured them, collected blood and tissue samples, took thermal images of the seals, tagged them, and then left the seals alone until the next research season. When the team comes back following year, they re-locate the seals, re-weigh and re-measure them, collect the tags, and determine if the seals have pupped.
