Liz and Mike started their test of the CryoEgg today. The tests are in preparation of reaching bedrock next year where the CryoEgg is to be dumped in the bprehole to sink to the bed and slide under the ice to measure pressure and temperature in the water under the ice. The difficult part is to get the Egg to communicate wireless with the surface unit using HF frequencies for communication. This is the test this year – to see if it is possible to maintain communication between the Egg and the surface unit as the Egg is lowered down in the borehole. Fingers crossed.
What we did today:
10 in camp (since August 15th)
Weather today: Overcast clearing to scattered high clouds. Wind 513 kt from W , Temperatures between -20 and -9°C.
