US Army Cold Regions Research & Engineering Lab
Hanover, New Hampshire
Supporting Stations: McMurdo Station
The Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) activities encompass engineering and basic research in support of a variety of projects at both McMurdo and South Pole Stations. At McMurdo Station, CRREL supports ground-penetrating radar (GPR) work with the South Pole Traverse (SPoT) and support for the McMurdo Station airfields. CRREL also provides general engineering analysis for projects at McMurdo and South Pole Stations.
Field Season Overview:
Deployments: 6 - 1 team member; early season for SPoT, SITS, GPR, ASPRR. - 4 team members, late-season for SMAI, DFMP, DSI, SPUTM, MCMMP-DS & SPSO. - 1 team members, mid-season for SBT.
ASC POCs: ALL: Brian Johnson
Primary NSF POC: Mr. George Blaisdell
There are several needs for the 2013-14 season. Since certain items may be required for different projects (i.e. a truck may be needed for both SPoT and other projects), project identifiers are included in this overview, as well as in each section, with the specific items:
We will need access to trucks, tracked vehicles and snow mobilies (SMAI, SR&T, SAC, SPoT). Surveying support is requested for various tasks (minimal time expected). South-bound cargo will need to be com-air shipped to ChCh.
