This is the eleventh entry in the Armed with Science series, Dispatches from Antarctica. The series features Air Force Lt. Col. Ed Vaughan’s first-hand experiences on OPERATION: DEEP FREEZE, the Defense Department’s support of National Science Foundation research in Antarctica.
7 October 2010 – McMurdo Station, Antarctica: Intensive Dropsonde phase of Concordiasi.
Cara Sucher, Laboratory Science Support Manager at McMurdo Station, provides some basic information as a follow up to the Concordiasi Project.
