At Swiss Camp this year, there were 1.2 meters (3.9 feet) of new snow that had accumulated in the past year that I had to dig through before reaching the hard, frozen ice of the ice sheet below.

146 viewsYou Dong Cho directs the helicopter to a landing area near our Spring Point instrument installations during the 2013 LARISSA Project. The Larsen Ice Shelf System, Antarctica (LARISSA) Project is a large, interdisciplinary, multi-institute study to explore every aspect of the deteriorating Larsen Ice Shelf region in Antarctica. Participating researchers set up instruments on the glaciers that feed into the remaining portion of the Larsen ice shelf. As changes occur on the ice, the stations will record it in data and pictures. (Credit: Ted Scambos, NSIDC) Read the expedition blog on http://iceshelf.wordpress.com.
