Four years ago, Catalyst met glaciologist Dr Melanie Fitzpatrick
This year, Melanie is spending her first full winter “on the ice”. She’s living and working with 14 other hardy souls at one of the most remote locations on the planet – Mawson station in East Antarctica.
Catalyst is presenting a regular blog from Mel, direct from Mawson, to share with you her experiences of daily life and scientific work in this incredible icescape.
