CU researchers' work in Antarctica back on track

BOULDER, Colo. - University of Colorado researchers in Antarctica are back on track following the political thaw that led to the end of the federal government shutdown.

Researcher Diane McKnight of university's Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research said there was a lot of concern about the status of scientific projects on Antarctica, which is just entering the most hospitable time for research.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, researchers can now begin work measuring early-season streamflows, a project that was put on hold by the shutdown.
