Antarctica Station research expedition
Antarctica Station research expedition – At the end of 2015 went to Antarctica expedition consisting of six scientists from Masaryk University in Brno. The University conducts a research station in Antarctica for over 10 years. Part of the research is done even when the station is completely deserted. Energy from solar panels drives the recording weather equipment. Scientists started 30 different analyzes. They examine primarily climate change, the intensity of UV radiation and the ozone hole. The new expedition brought a prototype of a wind turbine generator created in the Czech Republic. If all goes according to plan, the current can be produced both strong and weak wind. The researchers also brought 200 kg of plaster on the walls, to test their resistance to weather conditions.
