Beacon 2013 Symposium

From November 2010 to January 2011, Invert's Joe Kinrade visited Antarctica with the British Antarctic Survey, to service and retrieve data from Invert's network of GPS scintillation receivers. (These were installed by Cathryn Mitchell during her expedition the previous year.) He also installed a new receiver at the Rothera Research Station. See the space weather page for more information about the science behind this expedition.


A Twin Otter aeroplane drops the team at Site Eagle, where they worked in isolation for 12 days.

Joe co-piloted the Twin Otter across the Continent, flying over 5500km during six weeks.

Joe, looking a little rugged and tired, stands proudly at the south pole.
