Tour The West Antarctic Ice Sheet Field Camp, Antarctica

This season working at WAIS Divide Field Camp, Antarctica was busy, with days of hard work and rough weather. However, there were a few moments of free time and good weather, and during those moments I shot a few short clips.

In this 40-minute video, I take you on a personal tour of most of the facilities of WAIS Divide Field Camp, including a camp overview, full tour of the DISC Drill Arch, Tent City, the inside of my personal tent, and the center of camp. I also take you inside an Antarctic ski plane, and show you our medical, dining, recreation, comms, and mechanical facilities.

    Hi Jeffrey. Really great to see how you guys live there. Tell me, how fast can you set up your tent and did you set it up alone or did you need some help from the others?
