Departure for Antarctica

04 Dec 2011

Departure for Antarctica, for a field expedition of two months duration. If the polar logistics would eventually be easy with us at some point, we will conduct two scientific programmes : evolution of carbon monoxide in the firn air of Concordia (ANR COCLICO project of Xavier Faïn), and then snow physics and gas diffusion/trapping studies at a site characterized by very low accumulation rate (my ANR project called DOME A). Back to France in mid-February. Stay tuned !
