Science at summit

The SATCOM building where all the scientists gather to blog and write emails...oh and work up data.

The yellow tent next to it is the toilet. All materials are taken back to base to be disposed of.

The bally building so named after the manufacturers. This is where the two CIMS instruments are held as well as other small scientific instruments such as ozone, NO, spectro-radiometers and mercury measurements.  

A variety of instruments within the Bally building.

The air sampling bottles. These are filled with atmospheric air and then shipped to the USA where they will be tested for various atmospheric constituents.

Back of the NO instrument.

The mist chamber to measure soluble air particles.

This is what you have to do if you are a canadian (sorry tara!!!!) or fancy doing some snow sample
