This is our second deployment to Iceland under the NSF project in collaboration with Ohio State University. This time, the GPS team (Ohio State) carried out services for GPS markers, and the radar team (Univ. Washington) carried out monitoring of temporal changes of englacial and subglacial conditions using radar.  By clicking this picture, you can enjoy the slideshow on Flickr: click “show info” when the slideshow starts so that you can see photo captions.

NSF Arctic Natural Sciences funded Ohio State University (lead) and University of Washington to study dynamics of soft-bedded glacier in Iceland. We carried out the first field campaign in March, 2009, before ice starts to melt significantly.  By clicking this picture, you can enjoy the slideshow on Flickr: click “show info” when the slideshow starts so that you can see photo captions.

A team of five personnel was deployed to cental West Antarctica, where a new drilling camp was under construction.  Our team is composed of one safety expert, two graduate students, one post-undergraduate student, and myself.  As always, we traveled down to McMurdo and then to a remote camp.  This time, our stay in McMurdo is quite long to optimize our radar system.  By clicking this picture, you can enjoy the slideshow on Flickr: click “show info” when the slideshow starts so that you can see photo captions.

This is Dr.Matsuoka’s deployment to West Antarctica with US Antarctic Program (USAP) as a postdoctoral fellow (Lead PI: Howard Conway).  We flied from Christchurch in New Zealand to McMurdo Station, the largest town and the largest US logistic hub in Antarctica.  After preparation and training in the town, we were deployed to the central West Antarctica to make site surveys for a future ice coring project (now called WAIS Divide Ice Core Project).  By clicking this picture, you can enjoy the slideshow on Flickr: click “show info” when the slideshow starts so that you can see photo captions.
