Some of the highest lakes in the world can be found at the summits of volcanic mountains in the Andes, straddling the border between Chile and Bolivia. The High Lakes 2005 research team has just completed an expedition to explore two of those lakes. The lakes offer researchers an opportunity to study life in an extreme environment on Earth that in many ways mimic conditions on Mars. Expedition leader, Nathalie Cabrol, concludes her series of captain's logs.

If you're looking for the world's tallest mountains, head for the Himalayas. But if your objective is to explore the world's highest-altitude lakes, the Andes are where you want to go. The tiny lake inside Licancabur's summit crater presents some of the harshest conditions faced by life anywhere on Earth. Astrobiology Magazine is posting a series of log entries from the expedition leader, Nathalie Cabrol. She wrote down her reflections just after the High Lakes 2005 team managed to reach Licancabur's summit lake.

Scientists have traveled into the Bolivian Andes to study the life forms - mostly microbes - that inhabit some of the highest lakes in the world. These lakes offer an opportunity to study life in an extreme environment on Earth that is in some ways like conditions on Mars.

For the fourth year in a row, a team of scientists has traveled up into the Andes mountains in Bolivia to study the life forms - mostly microbes - that inhabit some of the highest lakes in the world. These high lakes offer researchers an opportunity to study life in an extreme environment on Earth that is in some ways like conditions on Mars. Astrobiology Magazine will be posting a series of log entries from the expedition leader, Nathalie Cabrol.
