Links to Updates- New & improved with video clips!
Antarctic Field Season 2010Steve Emslie, Jerzy Smykla, Xiaodong Liu, Eva Gruber (an undergraduate student of Steve's ) and I are heading south again to continue the National Science Foundation funded work we have been working on since 2000. The big push this year is to try to revisit Beaufort Island with the bird biologists, this time excavating stratified deposits at the big colony on the south end of the island.
We will again fly to McMurdo aboard an LC-130 ski plane, and visit our field sites with support from helicopters (all logistic arrangements are provided by the United States Antarctic Program). Our season is short this year, lasting only around 6 weeks.
In the adjacent frame you will find links to the Update pages I will create while we are in Antarctica during our field season. These pages contain digital images that illustrate our experiences while they are happening. All opinions expressed in the Updates are my responsibility, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Steve or other members of our group.
