View into Pyramid Trough with Royal Society Range in the background; a valley of diverse aquatic ecosystems and high biological productivity.
Assembly of ice corer. Cryoconite holes were ice covered and a hole has to be cored in order to sample water and sediment.
Stratified cyanobacterial dominated microbial mat with highly developed pinnacles from Macaw Pond near Miers Valley.
Pond sampling on Bratina Island. This was a fascinating pond, the conductivity reading throughout the water column was beyond what our conductivity meters could give a readout for. You can clearly see the salt build up around the edge of the pond from c
Jonathan Banks, algal strandlines, the shore of Buddha Lake and the southern lobe of the Joyce Glacier
BSNE wind-blown soil collector on lower moraine of Garwood Glacier, looking west across Lake Colleen, toward Pewe Peak and the Royal Society Range
Water and microbial mat sampling of a meltwater pond on the McMurdo Ice Shelf near Bratina Island for water chemistry and molecular microbial diversity analysis.
Jonathan Banks (left) and Ian Hogg (right) by a BSNE collector, looking west across Lake Colleen, toward the Garwood Glacier
Sampling of water and sediment at pond on ice cor moraine near Koettlitz Glacier. A hole had to be made using an ice axe in order to carry out sampling.
Field camp of K081B near the Koettlitz Glacier. 1st camp for the field-work on Koettlitz Glacier at ca 500 m altitude. Koettlitz Glacier in the background.
Delta of stream in Pyramid Trough running into Tough Lake with Koettlitz Glacier rising behind the lake.
Drilling a hole into cryoconite on Koettlitz Glacier for water and sediment sampling for water chemistry and microbial diversity analysis using molecular tools.
Pond sampling on Bratina Island: note the orange cyanobacteria mat and a residual piece of ice remaining in the bottom of the pond.
Christmas Day Kovacing. Taken from the head of Lake Wilson looking south toward the terminal section of the Darwin glacier and polar plateau in background
Dust trap recovery - inter-event support. Recovering dust traps deployed earlier in the season by a Victoria University event.
Before walking onto the Koettlitz Glacier, team members are putting on crampons for safe walking on the ice at the ice core moraine.
Sterile sampling of cyanobacterial mats in estuary of Miers Valley with 2nd camp of K081B in the background.
