Halley the station

An aerial from one of the twin otters. The caslab (my work place) can be just about seen on the left of this photograph. It is about one km from the main eating and sleeping quarters (Laws building).

The snow at Halley and the view.

A closer inspection of the setup. Four buildings drewry (summer excess accommodation), Simpson (meteorlogical platform), piggot, (aerial and radar platform), CASlab( chemistry, atmospheric analysis), Laws (home).

Our sleeping accommodation (Laws). Everything is built on metal stilts so that when the snow depth increases each year then the platform can be raised. Very 70's.

A summer BBQ, its only -4 oC. A few warm clothes and we are all happy.
