I’m off to Rothera research station on the Antarctic Peninsula this week, as soon as the weather clears up enough. There’s a backlog of flights because the DASH, the plane that ferries staff over to Rothera from Punta Arenas in southern Chile, has been unable to fly. I was meant to be there already in fact – but our departure has been repeatedly pushed back because of the early season storms raging down South.
It might be a blessing in disguise, however, because it means I’ve got more time to complete the model runs I was meaning to take with me!
Here’s the first of a series of three blog posts I’ve written for BAS about what we’re doing. Keep your eyes peeled for more!
