Sorry for the radio silence! We had an incredibly successful field season, but things got busy there towards the end. I didn’t have the chance to call Holly with an update, but I’m back in the USA now, reporting!
In total, we spent 2 weeks at our field site, Roberts Massif—a large, mountainous area sticking up out of the surrounding glaciers. At the beginning of the season we were planning to visit 2 sites—Roberts and the Dominion Range. However, the ice was too uneven for the Twin Otter to land at Dominion, and we found so many moraines to sample at Roberts, that we decided to stay there. We did a lot in our short field season, and I want to give you guys an idea of what it was actually like! So I’ll spend the next few days writing posts about different aspects of our field season, such as camp life and sampling. Stay tuned!
