Update on Ice from the field

We have established camp on top of Lorry Bluff. The radar is monitoring the glacier from its inflatable tent while five glacier stations record the tidal changes simultaneously. All expedition numbers are involved, Ryan and I take turns at maintaining the radar while Richard transforms our camp into an Icy Castle!

The weather has been very sunny lately but today has been overcast and snowing. The temperatures have been relatively toasty today but been below -20 in the evenings. We forgot to take our tea with us be Taco mix makes for a good drink, Ay Caramba!!!
