Astronomy from the Polar Plateau
This project aims to quantify these conditions at:
- Summit in Greenland
- Ellesmere Island in Canada
- Domes A and C on the Antarctic plateau
This will begin the process of turning these sites into front-line observatories.
An automated observatory, which can gather data over the winter, is scheduled to be delivered to Dome A through a Chinese-led traverse in the summer of 2007-08.
