|Arrival at PEA, view from the station's window on Utsteinen Nunatak|
After a tour of the station's facilities, most people went to work to check instruments, verify the arrived cargo and we started with the preparations of the upcoming field work. As mentioned before, a lot needs to be done and all tasks require quite a lot of logistic support. The first thing to do is to install a GPS station at Seal (a nunatak next to the former Japanese Asuka station). After that we'll head for the coast and do the work on Derwael ice rise (drilling, GPS network) and the work of the Be:Wise project that runs in conjunction with IceCon.
Scientific results of the expedition, of previous expeditions and a more detailed outline of the science plan of the IceCon project will be outlined on the project page and other pages available on this website.
