Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 2002-03: VUWAE 47
Various people from the event spent 24 days in the field from 16 Nov to 9 Dec. Daniel Pringle (VUW) from K131 joined K047 at Table Mountain to reprogram the data loggers on two temperature probes for 2003. Samples and soil pits were dug as outlined in Table 1. Soil pits were generally dug either in the centers of polygons or between them, and in locations picked in relation to the previous pits containing massive ground ice. Polygon centres are thought to be the least active area and hence should contain the oldest most chemically developed soil.
