Images from the WISSARD deep field camp 2014. Scientists and traverse and drill teams working in the field installing geophysics equipment on the Ross Ice Shelf. Few images made it through the internet gauntlet; the ones that have were taken and transmitted by Chad Carpenter, a member of the WISSARD drill team.
