Gearing up for the expedition

We’re only three weeks away from our next Antarctic expedition, and all of the required pieces are falling into place. It’s been a long time coming, and a LOT of work, but we’re excited to finally be getting back to Antarctica, and grateful to the National Science Foundation for giving us the opportunity. With many logistics professionals, two helicopters, and an enormous research ship to help us out, our expedition should be very well-equipped. We’re optimistic that we’ll be able to access some rarely-visited (by paleontologists and geologists) parts of the Antarctic Peninsula, and that we’ll find interesting and important fossils from the end of the Age of Dinosaurs at these places. With up to three separate teams of four to five scientists operating at any one time, there should be plenty to talk about. So please check this site and our Twitter feed (@antarcticdinos) frequently for updates from the field!
