I've just posted five blog entries written by Adrienne Kish and Juan Rodriguez, participants in this year's Arctic Mars Analogue Svalbard Expedition (AMASE). This week has seen them begin field work in earnest, with lots of work on a project titled Searching for Life in Ice (SLIce); SLIce involves drilling ice cores from incredibly beautiful glacial locations. Rodriguez has contributed many gorgeous photos -- go take a look!
