Our Blog: Expedition Preparation
All expedition participants are now gathered at Breakwater Lodge in Cape Town.
The week of October 2-8 was a busy one for the members of MAGIC-DML. It was spent preparing for the upcoming field season and reviewing progress from the previous one.
Although it seems like the 2016/17 field expedition to Antarctica only just ended, preparations for the 2017/18 season are already well advanced.
I have never quite come to terms with some stories of expeditions in the old days.
The Scandinavian mountains and the East Antarctic Heimefrontfjella mountain range (where our fieldwork is based) have several characteristics in common.
Last week, the MAGIC-DML took the first of its many steps at Röe Gård on the beautiful West Coast of Sweden.
12 weeks from today our field team will be departing from Oslo, their next stop.... ANTARCTICA!
