166 viewsOur pilots for the southern traverse: Jonas and Tomas. Jonas (left) is from Iceland and a legendary pilot in Greenland. Koni has known him for 25 years, back when Jonas was somewhat of a daredevil pilot from the stories Koni told us. Tomas (right) is from Denmark. Both spoke English fairly well.

166 viewsYoudong Cho, mountaineer and Won Sang Lee, geophysicist, look over the outcrop of rock selected for a planned later deployment of the seismic instrumentation and the Extreme Ice Survey camera 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.
