Taking the ice boxes out of the snow trenches.
Today we had a very successful mission to EGRIP. Skier 62 came at 13:00 in clear sunshine and -17°C. All the remaining 46 ice core boxes with ice cores and snow samples were taken from the snow trenches with the lift and built on pallets in the morning before the Skier arrived. The Skier took off with 3 pallets and 15 EGRIP’ers (load 14.400 lbs). Now, we are only 8 in camp.
What we did today:
Weather: Sun with wind 1 m/ to 5 m/s turning from SW to W, temperatures -28°C to -16°C.
