This was my first visit to Chilean Patagonia. As a part of our JSPS project under a collaboration with Marius Shaeffer from Universidad Austral and Gino Cassasa, we carried out glacier and lake measurements near the calving front of Grey Glacier in Southern Patagonia Icefield. It was an exciting experience to observe a complex structure of ice front within the lakewater, using a side-scanning sonner and a depth sounder. We enjoyed field activities with wonderful colleagues and a beautiful view of Paine mountains.
