Spaulding Pond Field Camp  WAP MNB-NEW

Field camp at Spaulding Pond, is located at  77° 39’ South, 163° 7’ East is a pond 0.3 nautical miles (0.6 km) northeast of the terminal ice cliff of Howard Glacier in Taylor Valley, Victoria Land, Antarctica.

The name was suggested by Diane McKnight, leader of United States Geological Survey (USGS) field teams, which studied the hydrology and geochemistry of streams and ponds in the Lake Fryxell basin, Taylor Valley, 1987–94. Named after USGS hydrologist Sarah Ann Spaulding, a member of the team during two seasons, 1988–89 and 1991–92, who studied the pond.

Spaulding Pond Field Camp,  77° 39’ South, 163° 7’ East,   will be add to the WAP-WADA Directory under MNB-NEW.

A WAP number will be given if and when an HF operation will put this “new entry”  on the air.
