June 1st, 2013 marked the beginning of SOAS . Here is a snapshot of the sunset at the Look Rock super site to mark the beginning of the field campaign. I guess even nature is excited about the official start of SOAS!
Research groups have settled into their trailers/towers/tents/sheds and started to take measurements of air quality data. And to kick off these six weeks of awesome field work, we had a barbecue at the SEARCH-CTR site the day before the official start date. Special thanks to Danny McMillan and our neighbor Mrs. Marjory Kinard for providing us with delicious BBQ food and pies!!!
