First data of the season!
A great day today. We brought the rest of our drilling equipment out to the drill site, and got the drill partially assembled. Also, I went along with Liz Morris and her assistant Martin, and we established a new site for science- ICESat-Center. We began a satellite validation experiment there, drilling a shallow hole and looking at shallow stratigraphy using Liz's Neutron density probe, and also my Borehole Optical Stratigraphy system. Above, I get the system ready to lower into the borehole.
