Camp Life

During the field season the EastGRIP camp is populated by more than 30 people; scientists, tradesmen and –women, guests etc. make up a small comunity. The workhours are long however, there is room for some other activites e.g. the weekly Saturday dinner.

On this page you can

  • Read field-diaries that tell the stories of everyday camp-life
  • Or dive into the blog posts from the Alfred-Wegener-Institut (AWI) which is updated once a month (in German)
  • Fly over camp, to get an overview of where the accommodation, storage, vehicle garages and workspaces (trenches) are placed
  • Take a virtual 360° guided tour down the trenches where the main ice core is drilled and scientists and technical staff prepare, store and measure on ice samples.

 

Field diaries





Eversince the project began in 2015 a field diary has been kept. In this section you will find new, as well as old field diary entries.

You can sign up to the eastgrip-diary mailing list, and you will thus recieve the field diaries directly from camp. You sign up by following this link. Please note that you cannot reply to this list as all mails, except from the FL and FOMs, will automatically be rejected.
