Life and Science at WAIS Divide

T.J. will be joining a group of scientists at WAIS divide camp in Antarctica to continue a large ice core drilling project.  The WAIS divide project is featured in a 10 minute video by Lee Holtz, a science columnist for the Wall Street Journal, who visited the core drilling site last year.  The photos and talk provide a great intro into life in a tent in Antarctica!

Where are we going . . .

This will be our home for the next six months!!  I will be at the McMurdo Station starting in mid-September.  T.J. will join me on his seventh continent in November to continue  work on an ice core drilling project at the WAIS divide camp.
