Sverrir, Peter and Lee shoveling the snow in place in the Carpenters garage

Establishing routines again

It felt good to wake up in the morning to a normal day and start the drill trench, science trench and surface program with mixed groups of trained and untrained scientists. In the water isotope cfa lab Will is training Jonathan while Sverrir is doing his best to instruct Peter and Lee how to shovel snow! All in all a positive and productive day.

  5. Measurements in physical properties to bag 2635.
  6. Water vapour sampling and measuring.
  7. Cleaning the floor and installing a new layer of fresh snow in the carpenters garage
  8. Removing power line to new balloon trench (concert hall)
