Logan Mitchell arrives in Antarctica

We have an exciting blog to share today. Ph.D. student Logan Mitchell is spending two months working at the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Divide research station in Antarctica, as a member of a National Science Foundation-funded project that aims to collect a 3.5 kilometer-long ice core over three summer seasons. The intention is to provide Antarctic records of environmental change for the last 100,000 years.

The blog and the accompanying photos on Flickr will give us a glimpse of what it means to be a scientist working in such an extreme location.
