The members of the GREECE Fields team had their first day in Fairbanks, AK today, and managed to take a few pictures while getting situated.
Nathan Carruth is a graduate student in the UCB Physics department and is part of the UCB GREECE science team. Amanda Slagle and Erica Kotta are staff engineers at UCB SSL and are members of the UCB GREECE engineering team. They designed and built the Digital and Analog electronics boards of the Fields package. The photographer (not pictured) is Jeremy McCauley, another staff engineer at UCB SSL, and a member of the UCB GREECE engineering team. He designed and built the boom systems for the Fields sensors as well as the enclosure for the electronics.
The team will be working on putting the Fields instrument package into the sounding rocket payload section provided by the WFF/NSROC team. They will be working at the Poker Flat research Range, about an hour northwest of Fairbanks along the Steese Highway.
