Arctic Buildings208 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.

207 viewsTowards the end of the ARISE Cruise, the Aurora Australis had navigated its way towards Casey Station, Antarctica, but only got close enough to air-lift the designated team to Casey; it was just another part of the journey for that team. Pictured here is Casey Station.

Arctic Buildings206 viewsDue to changes in the ice floe surface, it was not uncommon for camps to relocate to more stable ground. This photograph was taken during the rebuilding of the camp NP-22 in 1980. Aluminum tent poles are at the right, and an overturned boat is at the left. Image credit: EWG.
