It’s T-1┬áday until I head to the Arctic toa Russian ice camp near the north pole. I will be deploying an ice teathered buoy with a string of temperature and light sensors. I will be posting video blogs to the wesbite, just look under field blogs Arctic on the top banner.

In the meantime here are a few pictures of the buoy i will be deploying.

Checking that the sensors will fit through a 10 inch hole.
