Description

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 and support for the McMurdo Station airfields. CRREL also provides general engineering analysis for projects at McMurdo and South Pole Stations.


Field Season Overview

CRREL researchers will be working at the McMurdo Shear Zone field site, the Scott Base Transition, on the McMurdo Ice Shelf and at the South Pole Station.
