Yeti is taking a break for the summer of 2013 and being readied for another deployment to Antarctica in the fall of 2013 for a new project to study the flow and fracture dynamics of the McMurdo Shear Zone through funding from the National Science Foundation.  Stay tuned for additional updates on this project over the next three years!

Yeti's sister, the Cool Robot, is currently deployed to Greenland to perform aerosol studies in the vicinity of Summit Camp, and to study ice-melt features in the ice later at Summit.  You can follow the Cool Robot's journey at

Congratulations to Rebecca Williams, who received her Ph.D. degree this past week and has embarked on the next phase of her own journey.  Go Becca!
