We've had two more days of canceled flights to complete our work. The only remaining units we have left to deploy are two summer ice sites and the end of the glacier on the Ross Ice Shelf, and two winter-over ice sites in the catchment basin at the top of the glacier above two subglacial lakes.

Station is quite overcrowded at the moment so three of us are actually headed north this afternoon/evening (weather permitting). The other three will remain in McMurdo in the hopes of finishing our deployment before they begin their trek north next Wednesday. All in all this has been a very successful trip with an extensive deployment of 26 GPS units up and down The Byrd. We'll be back in February to retrieve 23 of them and begin the data processing!
