On the Ice

West Antarctic Icesheet Station

Lee and I are scheduled to go to WAIS tomorrow morning, we have a few stations to visit in West Antarctica and we will (hopefully) get a chance to fly on twin otters from WAIS camp. I can’t believe I am going to WAIS before I visited any stations on the Ross ice shelf. I really-really hope we will get to return on-time to do a few of the long list of scheduled stations to visit this season.

The weather in McMurdo has not been that great yesterday and today, so it is at least not that surprising. Tall Tower! weather also has not been ideal – low clouds make it difficult to visit Tall Tower! during this season.

If we do get to fly tomorrow, Lee and I will be away from the internet for a while. We did get our WAIS emails: first six letters of the last name + first two letters of the first name @wais.usap.gov

I hope I will not get to update for some time 😉
