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.

133 viewsAll done! After two days of work, you can now actually see the wooden platform that Swiss Camp rests on. Hopefully when all of the surrounding snow melts this summer, it will now flow down this platform and away from the tents.

131 viewsResearchers fly over Crane Glacier to look for an area to set up their instruments and an Extreme Ice Survey camera, during the 2013 LARISSA expedition. 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.
