Ice and Medicine at the end of the earth

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!

    Wow! I hope you guys have good long underwear. It looks c-o-l-d there. Jessie, if you fly Air New Zealand, you’ll never want to go back to the crappy US airlines again. They supply free movies and a couple meals and free video games for the long international flights. If you’re not flying with them, sleep.
