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.
RAID traverse leaves McMurdo for Minna Bluff.
Digging out, to head out.
Back in action for 2017-18!
Warm holidays from RAID camp.
Wouldn’t be science without a challenge or two.
There’s a lot to see and do in McMurdo on our way to the field.
