Antarctic Life

A frozen outlook on life on the ice


My name is Greig Lawson and I am a British doctor originally from Aberdeen, Scotland. I am currently working for the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) as one of the 4 doctors supporting the research down in Antarctica. I will be based in Plymouth initially for the first 6 months prior to working on the Ernest Shackleton supply vessel which will take me to Halley where I will be situated for 12 months.
I hope to share with you through regular updates a glimpse into what life is like down here as well as providing you with some photos of my experiences along the way.
