The McMurdo Dry Valleys Seismic Project monitors regional and global seismicity. The Dry Valleys stations are part of the Air Force Technical Applications Center’s (AFTAC) southern network, which accumulates near-real-time data from nine locations in the southern hemisphere. The data are transmitted to the National Data Center in Florida and made available to the international scientific community. The team will be traveling to Bull Pass and Mt Newall to refuel the diesel generators, perform annual engine, electrical, and technical, maintenance and inspections.
