Supporting Stations: Palmer Station
This project services and calibrates the automated radionuclide air-particulate monitoring system in the International Monitoring Station (IMS) building (Terra Lab) at Palmer station.
Field Season Overview:
We require continuing local support by the Palmer Station RA for the installed monitoring equipment as well as one site visit per year of an engineer or scientist for maintenance and upgrades to the equipment. Logistical support involves shipping supplies such as filter media and replacement equipment to the station as well as sending the samples on a quarterly basis to Vienna Austria. There are occasionally single samples that must be sent to a laboratory elsewhere is the world for reanalysis. The Annual supplies consist of about 50 pounds of filter media. We do not need to send UPS batteries to the station this year
