Since I've spent so much time talking about Crary Lab I thought it would be appropriate to share a little more about the facility in which I've working. Built in 1991 Crary Lab was named in honor of Albert Crary, a pioneer in polar geophysics and glaciology and the first person in history to set foot on both poles. Other recognitions included being the chief scientist of the US Antarctic Research program from 1960-1968.
The state of the art 4300 square meter facility contains the labs and offices for researchers interested in biological studies, atmospheric science, and Earth sciences. It contains freezers for processing ice cores, a seismic observatory,library, dark room, an electronic workshop, and three large aquariums.
One of the best aspects of being in Antarctica is having the opportunity to interact with the many scientists. All are equally as passionate about their research and most are willing to share the details of their project. Barb calls it "science camp for adults"
