description Halley is on a floating ice shelf which moves roughly 500 m per year. In winter there is darkness for 105 days. Supplies are landed by ship onto the ice shelf and then towed on sledges to Halley VI, some 20 km distance from the ice edge. Total column ozone has been measured at Halley since 1956. Ground-based reactive gas measurements are made at Halley's Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab) that is situated ~1 km from the station in a sector that receives minimal contamination from the generators. No routine vehicle access is permitted to the CASLab. The present station (the sixth near this location) consists of 8 purpose-built accommodation and science modules on hydraulic legs that are raised approximately annually to keep them clear of the accumulated snowfall. The station operates throughout the year with a population of roughly 65 in the summer and roughly 15 over winter. Internet access is available. Picture of Halley facility
