The Team has arrived!

November 12th, 2009 has marked the start of the 2009-2010 BELARE expedition as the first team has landed at Novo airbase at 03.36 UTC. Upon arrival at Princess Elisabeth Station at Utsteinen, the team will thus begin the first phase of this year's expedition.

After setting up the base camp, the members of the expedition will terminate the installation of the active systems, finish the cabling for the data network and the construction of the platform upon which a satellite antenna will be installed later in the season.
