Eager team drilling the 10 m KOPRI ice core.
Today a sunny day with colder temperatures (-10 ºC) and some wind and this made the day perfect for surface ice core drilling. An eager team walked into the clean area and together we drilled a 10.45m deep 3 inch ice core. A happy day for Kha.
What we did today:
Ad 9. The system worked well until at distance of 23 km towards the RADIX site. We believe the surface contours prevent the connection at the RADIX site. A few meters higher placement of the discs might allow communication between EGRIP and the RADIX site.
Weather: Overcast and snow all day, clearing in the evening. Temperatures between -16 ºC and -8 ºC. The wind dropped from 12 kt to 9 kt during the afternoon. The wind direction was mainly from 240 T.
Camp population: 32
