Now, meteorological data from the Pole of Inaccessibility is sent via the Argos satellite system and will be available on the internet soon. This is the second Automatic Weather Station that we have installed for the University of Utrecht at this traverse.
Also, drilling of the third 90 meter core is well underway. The drilling team passed 40 meters depth last night. We have been communicating with at Chilean traverse team, currently at the South Pole and heading towards the Pole of Inaccessibility, to explore possibilities for a meeting on the ice.
