210 viewsWhile Nic and Russ are off working on the weather station at NASA-SE, I'm digging another snow pit. This one is 2.5 meters (8 feet) deep! At that point, I reached the layer from the previous year's snow surface.

Arctic Buildings209 viewsAround some buildings in the summertime, "pedestaling" occurs because structures shade the ice and snow beneath from the sun's heat. Each subsequent summer adds to the height of the pedestal. This building on NP-22 reached 5 meters in height after seven years. Image credit: EWG.
