A Little About the Southern Ocean at the New Ocean Hall in D.C.

Today I went to the new Ocean Hall that opened at the National Museum of Natural History. I did not think at all about it having anything to do with Antarctica, although considering Antarctica is surrounded by a major ocean it is not surprising I found references to it. They actually have a special corner of the exhibit about the Arctic and Southern Oceans. It is really interestingly done with comparison info on the two oceans on top of each other. Below are some pictures I took of the Arctic and Southern Ocean part of the exhibit. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the D.C. area and it is a new permanent exhibit, so no rush to go see.
