The science team arrived at KAN-U yesterday afternoon after weather conditions had improved enough for a safe snowmobile traverse. The traverse took about 4-5 hours and is located NW of DYE-2. They have a lot of work scheduled at this location including ice core drilling, installation of weather stations and GPS units which will take at least two days as long as the unpredictable weather cooperates!  Make sure to to follow their progress on the Ice Sheet here.
