Hello UNAVCO and PASSCAL (Tim can you forward this to the rest of 
PASSCAL, please?),

Greetings from the Antarctic Peninsula - we are patiently waiting for 
good weather and good sea ice conditions to fly to install a few GPS and 
Seismic stations...  waiting and waiting and waiting.

The Girls on Ice applications are up online - please spread the word! 
Especially to any teachers you know across the country and the world. 
It's a tuition-free program, and we do our best to make sure that family 
financial situation is not a barrier to a girl participating.
