A Message from Pete Makovicky and Nate Smith:

We would like to acknowledge the National Science Foundation's Office of Polar Programs for funding support. This research expedition would also not have been possible without the support of The Field Museum of Natural History's Geology Department.

In addition, we would like to thank The Negaunee Foundation for funding the development of our EXPEDITIONS at the field museum website. Project team members that were involved in this expedition also deserve thanks for their support.

For scientific and logistical support, we thank the National Science Foundation's United States Antarctic Program and Raytheon Polar Services Company, as well as the scientific and support staff in McMurdo Station, Antarctica. We also thank USAP remote field crews, past and present, who have contributed to the scientific exploration of Antarctica.
