antarctica BAS Halley (VI) Research Station


2006 to present

75 35 S - 26 39 W
Brunt Ice Shelf
Elevation: 100 feet

Originally known as Station Z this British Antarctic Survey research station is occupied all year around, on the Brunt Ice Shelf (floating on the Weddell Sea), established with an innovative modular and mobile design in 2006. Quite difficult to be precise about its location as a) it is movable (both vertically and horizontally) and b) the Brunt Ice Shelf is flowing at c 700m/yr westwards.
Previous Halley stations have been more-or-less in the same area but with the exception of Halley (V), have all been buried under snowfalls. Whilst Halley (V) could be moved up on stilts to clear the accumulation of snow, the legs were anchored on the ice sheet and the station was stripped and largely removed before Halley (VI) came on stream.
