A drone image of the PistenBully pulling the Mills Cross Radar.
After testing and calibrating the 16 transceiving and transmitting elements on the Mills Cross time has come to move the radar with the Pistenbully. As a first test we will copy lines measured earlier by the AWI Polar 6 aricraft spring 2018 and the NASA Operation IceBridge 2014.
What we did today:
Weather: Overcast all day. Temperatures between -12 º and 7 º. Wind 12 kt in the morning decreasing to 3 kt in the night. Wind from 270-320T.
Camp population: 13
