The Adventure
We’re going to have a very busy day. A group of glaciologists at Rusty Airfields – Wood Lake science station have chartered us to transport them and their gear and supplies to a number of locations and retrieve some samples. First we’ll drop off two folks with laser reflectors at the base of Reid Glacier. They’ll climb the glacier, placing reflectors, and hike back down to the sea for later retrieval. From there it’s a very short hop across the channel to Russell Island to drop off a scientist at an existing campsite with food and a laser rangefinder. The idea is to accurately measure (within a cm) the motion of the glacier’s surface over time. Then it’s a short flight to John Hopkins Glacier to sample the ice from large blocks that have calved from the glacier. After that, another fairly short hop to the base of Grand Pacific and Margerie Glaciers to drop off more people, equipment and supplies. They’ll want us to take ice cores on board for transport back to RAWL. Now it’ll be up and over the mountains to the base of Grand Plateau Glacier with the last of the scientists, equipment and supplies. Pick up more ice cores here, head back over the mountains to pick up the first two we dropped off at Reid Glacier, and finally head back to Rusty Airfields. Like I said – a busy day.

Hope to see you there,
