Sampling Site #1: Robinson Ridge

Located approximately 1 hour via Hägglund from Casey Station sits Robinson Ridge, our first sampling site.

Direct from the field hut logbook ~ a la Dan Wilkins:

SAT 16/02/19

Ferrari project arrives to resample the long anticipated soil biodiversity transect. Whoever thought that 300m could seem so long? Perfect conditions for sampling. Warm day, 0/8 cloud, winds less than 5 knots. Team cracked on to 10:30pm sampling, then returned to hut for wine and cheese dinner.

SUN 17/02/19

Ferrari project had brilliant conditions yet again, transect sampling complete by 6:50pm. Retired to hut for wine and veg tajine, then walked down to water. No whales. No seals. Lovely though. First timers most impressed.

MON 18/02/19

Ferrari project unable to depart until 2nd Häg arrives from station so that we can comply with new SOP’s —> NO NAUGHTY EXPEDITIONERS ARE ALLOWED IN THE REAR OF THE HÄG. Anticipated departure close to lunch.
