In the second of 3 podcasts taped, edited and uploaded from NSF's Summit Station, station manager Kathy Young takes viewers on a tour of one of Earth's most unique "laboratories on the ice." Situated at more than 10,000 feet in the heart of the Greenland ice sheet, see where researchers sleep, where they get (and get rid of) water, and get a sneak preview of the science to be seen in Podcast 3. You'll see why Summit Station is more than a place to work -- it's also a place to work out, and relax to stay sharp and do cutting-edge atmospheric and snow & ice research in extreme and always challenging conditions.
