Dale Andersen's Field Reports: Lake Untersee, Antarctica 10 November 2014

The team is on the ice, having arrived ok at Novolazarevskaya Station yesterday afternoon.

We had a solid day of work today getting gear together; the snowmobiles are now up and running, and everyone is keen to make the traverse to Lake Untersee, but  we have a fair amount of work to get done before we leave so we will likely be here for another 3 days or so depending on the weather.

The wind did pick up this afternoon hitting 30 kts or so with blowing snow, and they are expected to increase tonight and tomorrow so we may not be quite as productive tomorrow, but we will see what the day brings. Its nice to be back in Antarctica and soon we will be camped on the shores of Lake Untersee!
