Miles Mosley (GA) and Tim Christie (Surv) with the Gaels. In the early 1970s, The access from Stonington Island was by a steep ice ramp which connected the island to the snout of the North East Glacier. In the two years I was at Stonington, the ramp diminished in width from over 100m to around 40m. The ramp was gone by the mid-late 70s when the dogs were 'phased out' (shot) and the base closed. Global warming?
