But the real purpose of this trip...

Was to come up and train the new phase 1 winter science technicians. Today we finally made space in their busy training schedule for us to go out to my borehole site and do some training with the video logging gear.

Here the new science techs Howie and Kathy are bringing the camera back up to the surface. Howie is watching for the camera to emerge from the hole, and Kathy is running the winch and keeping an eye on the video and depth counter signals. They did a great job, and I'm confident that they'll have a good, productive season and collect good data for not only me, but over 20 other investigators with experiments ranging from atmospheric sampling to snow chemistry.
