Packing up, on to the next task!
Today we started out by packing up the drill out at the site, and bringing it back, ready for its next tasking, which will be to drill another hole near camp for another experiment. We, however, will be moving on to our next tasks, which involve borehole logging, digging pits, and GPS surveying (more on these later). As I was walking through camp, I saw the Norwegians about to launch their Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), so I stopped to see how it went. They are testing the UAV for albedo measurements over the ice sheets. Above, the pilot readies the UAV for launch.
