Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 1992-93: VUWAE 37



A sealed box of cargo accompanied the VUWAE equipment for K-042 to the ice. This was unpacked for us by the K-042 personnel and store personnel had set it aside for our arrival. We encountered no difficulties with cargo handling at Scott Base and congratulate the two base staff on the efficient manner in which they handled helicopter loads and rock samples to be returned to New Zealand. In all we packaged some 12 rock boxes (~10001bs) of samples for return to New Zealand. These boxes were numbered, addressed, weighed, sealed and banded before being loaded into a large carton and palletised for transport.
