Polar Research: December 2013



The Tawani Antarctic Expedition group photo, taken just before we started taking down the tents at Lake Obersee. Tomorrow and Monday we say goodbye to Cape Town and start our journeys back to USA, Austria and Russia.

The Everest tracked vehicle is here with a nice large sled in the back and a cabin attached.

We have completed our work here at Lake Obersee, accomplishing most all of our objectives despite a late start due to stormy weather.

I just got off the phone with Dale Andersen who is at Lake Obersee, Antarctica.

We made the first dives beneath the thick, perennial ice (3.6 m) of Lake Obersee yesterday.
