Goodbye to the EGRIP camp.
The ice margin on the side of the NEGIS ice stream is very special with a 10-20 m surface depression along the side margin. To investigate the margin a cryo-egg will be placed in a 11 m deep borehole drilled a few weeks ago.
Nanna, Iben and Josefine took off after lunch, found the borehole and placed the cryo-egg at the bottom. Unfortunatly, there was some problems with the electronics and we will need to go back to the site in a few days. The skidoo team was back in camp for dinner.
What we have done today:
Weather today: Partly medium high clouds all day. Temperature -10°C last night increasing to -4°C in the morning. Wind 10 kt from NW all day dropping to 4 kt from W in the evening.
