List Of Science Teams Worked With On TGAA
I worked with many different science teams in the Antarctic. Every science
team, technical team, and visitor is assigned an "Event Code" I was V-002
(Visitor number 002). The team numbers stay the same year to year and are
assigned sequentially, so teams with a smaller number started working in the
Antarctic earlier (some of the teams have been around for over 10 years).
Here is a listing of the teams I worked with, in chronological order of when
I worked with them:
- S-042 did most of their work at Lake
Hoare. Their research centered around the ecology of Lake Hoare as well
as testing out Red ROVer, a Telepresent Remotely
Operated Vehicle(TROV). The members were from the Desert
Research Institute, located in Reno, Nevada, and NASA Ames, located in Moffet Field, California.
- S-020 did most of their work at Lake
Fryxell. Their research centered around the ecology of Lake Fryxell and
relating it to the ecology of tide-water marshes on the East coast of the
US. The members were from Woods Hole Oceanographic
Institute located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
- T-??? worked out of McMurdo. Their research centered on creating an
operational ice runway on the Ross Ice Shelf capable of landing C-141's and
C-5's. One member was from the Army's Cold Regions Research and
Engineering Labs and the other from the ????Russian equivalent..need to get
- S-132D did their work at the South Pole.
Their research centered around Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation
(CMBR). The members were from Princeton.
- S-167 did their work on Taylor Dome. Their
research centered around the patterns of ice flow in Taylor Dome and how
knowledge of that helps them use other data from the ice to do climatology
research. The members were from ????some place in canada????.
