After 44 years reading the weather, and seven years combined time on Campbell Island (the longest combined time on the island) manning New Zealand's most southern meteorological station, it is time for Mark to hang up the thermometer.

Mark was a key support personnel on the Campbell Island expedition - downloading and interpreting weather maps every night so that we knew what kind of weather was in store for us on the following days. Without Marks interpretation we would not...

The island’s Albatross species have been key players in the history of ecology in the region with a banding program established during World War II by Jack Sorensen, a naturalist stationed on the island as a coastwatcher. Over the ensuing years MetService staff, scientists and most recently international volunteers have continued this (and other) ornithological research.
