Team celebration of the core buffer.
After lowering the floor with 30 cm we have leveled the floor and placed a shelve system for the ice cores in the room. We need enough shelf room for 600 m of core next year when we drill through the brittle zone. The hard working team is enjoying that the mission is accomplished.
What we have done today:
Ad. 6: The GPS points on the north margin of the ice stream were remeasured and the first drone missions where attempted. In the third attempt part of a grid was made. It was concluded that the batteries need to be warm under launch.
Weather today: Blue sky all day. Temperatures -16°C during night and evening and up to -5°C in the day. Wind changing between 5 and 10 kn.
