With me in the desert will be a international team of scientists, including NASA's Chris McKay and Jon Rask. Although the United Arab Emirates are famous for the rich and futuristic cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, I won't be spending much time in them. We'll be inland instead, mostly in the university town of Al-Ain, and in the Liwa Oasis. The map below shows where Al-Ain is. The green pencil points to it.
I will post photos and journal entries to this site from the field each day that I have internet access.
