Going from one place to another in Antarctica using surface means, in other words big tractors pulling heavy sleds. For continental stations it's a much cheaper alternative than ferrying everything by airplane but it takes longer. The french have been running traverses between DdU and Dome C for about 15 years now, and they manage to do 3 traverses each summer; it takes about 12 to 15 days to drive up the 1100km between DdU and Dome C with about 150 tons of net load, and about 8-10 days to drive back down mostly empty (only some trash and returning equipment). The main difficulties are avoiding crevasses, soft snow areas, failures of engines or various parts, and following accurately the track which gets covered by the wind in its lower 600km portion. Right: Last Twin-Otter departing from Dome C.
A westerly wind in central France. It is moderate to strong, generally squally, humid, and thundery in summer, especially on slopes facing west; it is cold in winter and spring and brings snow or hail showers. In Auvergne it brings continuous rain (the Grand Vent or plouazaou). In the Alps it is cold and squally. Houses in regions subject to the traverse are protected by roughcast or double walls, and in the Mont Cantal part of Auvergne, where it is especially violent, zinc sheets are used on the walls; roofs are built of large stone slabs.

To survey along a path from station to station measuring angles and distances. A closed traverse begins and ends at the same point. An open traverse begins at a known point and ends at some different point.
A survey consisting of continuous series of connected straight lines, the lengths and bearings of which are measured. When the lines form a complete circuit or lie between two known points it is termed a closed traverse; otherwise it is termed an open traverse.
Sequence of lengths and directions of lines connecting a series of stations, obtained from field measurements, and used in determining positions of the stations.
The turning of a gun so as to make it point in any desired direction.
A turning; a trick; a subterfuge.

To use the posture or motions of opposition or counteraction, as in fencing.
