Thursday December 7:
The activities in the camp were organized into two shifts: the team of Frank, Stef and TJ wake up at 7:30 am and go on the field to make radar profiles or GNSS profiles; the team of Jean-Louis, Etienne and Emmanuel wake up at 1:30 pm, start to drill the ice cores until 4 or 5 am (when there is no risk of ice melting by the sun). Christophe and I joined the more traditional daylight shift but all the teams often join the drillers to help… or to celebrate a milestone depth!!
