Eureka Prize: Aurora over Davis

For promotion of New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography only.

Whilst researching the effects of elevated CO2 on marine algae at Davis Base, Antarctica, the Aurora Australis bathed us in all its splendor one night in early 2009. The photo illustrates the nature of science in an extreme environment; extreme in both its remoteness and its beauty. There was no manipulation of the photo.
