Solar panels and seismometers

Today was the first working day of the summer campaign. We spent most of it preparing the 15 solar panels we shall be installing at our 5 CASE-IPY stations. We also found time for playing with the new seismometers we shall deploy at these stations, the Trillium-120PA. They come with a special protective cover, which we have never used before, so we have had to adapt our procedures a little.

The first photo below shows the Trillium-120PA standing on the protective base; the second photo shows the complete protective cover.
