The links below connect to a series of image shows documenting SandyDuck activities. The images in these shows are low-resolution copies selected from
a series of 960x1080 pixel images taken during the experiment. The high resolution images can be obtained from the FRF FTP SandyDuck Image Site.
NOTE: Shows display best at a screen resolution of 800x600 or better. The auto-running feature works fine on PC's but we have heard it is too fast on Macs
and some Unix workstations. Manual advance works on all platforms. You may have to scroll your screen to display the control buttons.
