Today we tested most of our equipment and setup to get into the field on Wednesday. Frank, one of our excellent field guides/mechanics, built a box for carrying our equipment on the SkiDoo, while Mark and I were testing our equipment and doing some test coring. With these cores we want to detect the melt layers in the snow layers on the ice shelf.

This box will allow charging one of our instruments while we are driving in the field.
