Sky Blu - Pine Island Glacier

Taking off from Sky Blu's blue ice runway heading for matrix on Pine island glacier.

Matrix is the depot on Pine Island Glacier this glacier moves 3 m every day closer to the sea and is speeding up the scientists we dropped off are studying this to see if it is due to global warming.
Matrix is 2200 feet above sea level.

Unloading all the kit, they need so much kit as they will live here for 3-4 months.

Digging out the old depot which was buried under 2 m of snow.

My tent for the night a V25, I had this all to my self.
The pilot I flew with was Nico a Belgium Pilot , he is very good.

Hello Stephen, I have enjoyed looking through a lot of the pictures on your site. What a wonderful, wonderful experience you are living even though it must be hard being so far away from family.
Speaking of family.... I think you must have met with my brother Feargal Buckley (FA) as from a email I received he has last week passed through sky blu on his way to Pine Island glacier project and will be one of the LUCKY guys out there in tents for a couple of months.
Sending warm wishes to all the crews in Antarticia.
