In 2016 Programme Manager Al Fastier was part of a UKAHT four-person team which spent a month on-site at Base Y, Marguerite Bay, Horseshoe Island, undertaking emergency repair work to the building and scheduling building and artefact work for future years.

The scientific base (1955-1960), now under UKAHT’s care, once conducted geology, meteorology and topographic survey research.
