The sea level pre-expedition data collection was completed successfully in Bangor this weekend. All of the equipment will now be dismantled and carefully packed ready for freighting at the end of the month.
When the team next comes together it will be in Nepal. Repeating the research there will be rather more problematic. The researchers themselves will be suffering from the hypoxia associated with altitude, the equipment will have been man handled to a base camp 5,100 metres up in the Himalaya and subjected to temperatures of minus 20 degrees.
We are hoping that everything survives the journey!
