On my way to Antarctica on the James Clark Ross, albatrosses were wheeling about the ship. I asked the Met Officer on board, also bound for the base at Rothera, if he could give me a wind and pressure chart, pus a satellite image for each day I spent South. The idea for these pieces came from that information, together with the map of the flight of a tagged albatross, which was given to me by a biologist at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge.
