BACK TO WORK
3rd Antarctic Field Trials (AFT3), 2019-20 It’s been a long time since RAID last communicated, but we are back at work! After a hiatus in the 2018-19 season to do some upgrades and service to the modules while other projects used heavy science tractors, we are back at Minna Bluff for a third round...
Time flies when you’re having firn. RAID testing is coming to a close, and with it, my first Antarctic field season.
Successful completion of packer pressure test. Completed a record-breaking borehole to 131 meters. On to ice drilling!

Happy holidays from RAID camp at Minna Bluff! We are drilling again and continuing our experimentation.
