Fieldwork comes to a close

January 26, 2015

The WISSARD fieldwork ends and the last wave of scientists leave camp, myself among them.  It has been a very successful season, and all of us have samples and data with which to work when we get back to our home institutions.  I will have about a week in McMurdo Station before heading back home, stopping in New Zealand for a few  days for some recreation.  Thanks for following me during my journey!
