  1. 1. - Antarctica - <ul><li>In 1980 wintered-over at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, located at the geographic South Pole. I served as the chief meteorologist. From 1981 through 1986 I returned each austral summer season to the Antarctic to assist in the deployment of a number of automatic weather stations around the continent. Here are some photos </li></ul>
  2. 2. Icebergs, viewed from the cockpit of a Hercules
  3. 10. Ski-equipped Hercules aircraft provide the transportation
  4. 14. A geodesic dome provides shelter from the wind. Several small buildings are beneath the dome.
  5. 15. The “Clean Air” sampling station – measurements of CO2 and other trace gases
  6. 21. This two story structure housed the scientific work area and some of the sleeping quarters
  7. 28. Automatic Weather Stations
  8. 30. A strong frontal passage recorded by an AWS station 100 km south of Ross Island
  9. 33. Adelie Land Traverse
  10. 38. The Greenland Ice Sheet Project
  11. 39. The 3000 meters of ice core were retrieved over 5 summer seasons. As the cores were extracted from the drilling rig they were cut into one meter sections. Each was then sliced horizontally, half going into sealed storage and half analyzed in situ.
  12. 40. Electro-conductivity as climate signal
  13. 41. 1993 – completion of 5 year drilling to bedrock
  14. 42. Core extracted near bedrock
