Monday December 4, we went to the plateau to install the passive samplers. It was a beautiful day without any cloud or wind. We started at 9 in the morning and drove with our skidoos towards the plateau. Jacques, the doctor of Princess Elisabeth Antarctica station and experienced fieldguide accompanied us during our journey. We drove along the most beautiful mountains we have ever seen and took the time to take some pictures. After a 35km drive we nearly reached our destination, in the far distance we could observe an old meteo station . After digging holes in the snow, and stabilizing the poles, we mounted our samplers. Mission accomplished! After the work, we enjoyed a piece chocolate and a warm tea while enjoying the landscape and went back to the station.
