After six months of preparations and great support by Campbell Scientific and AWI logistics, the overwintering scientist, Damián López, and I finally installed the sensor to measure the water vapor and carbon dioxide content of air back to the eddy covariance system.
After our rather late arrival at Jubany station, we first had to deal with several problems connected to the last overwintering crew like missing or broken equipment. But after a two weeks of reorganization and a lot of help of the present station's crew and commander, we find ourselves in the middle of a very nice and smooth campaign.
As soon the weather allowed we went straight onto the glacier to check out our weather stations.
Friday February 04, Hilke (IMCOAST diploma student) and I left for our next campaign to King George Island.
