CANDAC scientists arrived in Eureka, Nunavut on Sunday!

CANDAC scientists Debora, Zen, Joseph, Emily, Volodya, Dan, and Xiaoyi arrived at Eureka, Nunavut on Sunday, February 24 to begin measurements for the 2013 Canadian Arctic ACE Validation Campaign. You can learn more about their campaign by following their blog (http://createarcticscience.wordpress.com/) and checking out their website (http://acebox.uwaterloo.ca/eureka/). Their daily photo journal is always filled with magnificent photos showing Arctic wildlife, the surrounding environment, and their instruments/laboratory. Below are a few photos from the 2012 Campaign.
