More on camp life at Lake Fryxell

Posted by Anne D Jungblut on Dec 1, 2012 11:49:34 AM

I have got a few more impressions to share on our camp life. We have an amazing view from our cooking area, out across Lake Fryxell and towards Mt Erebus in the background.

We brought a lot of equipment and some days the camp is turned into a workshop to get everything installed, assembled, checked and running for our measurements in the lake.

Another important task is to keep the heater running in the camp.

I'm Anne Jungblut from the Botany Department. Join me as I head to Antarctica to study cyanobacterial diversity in ice-covered lakes of the Dry Valleys and Ross Island where already scientists on Scott's and Shakleton's expeditions made many discoveries.
