Our science team has been working virtually non-stop since their arrival on the ice sheet over a week ago.  Since they’ve not had any down time, a storm day would have been welcomed, but with near “balmy” weather every day so far, they’ve been working long 12-hour days – dubbed by the team as “science-palooza days”.

With all tasks completed in the southern section of their traverse, the team is heading back to DYE-2 “home base” camp. Since they are well ahead of schedule, there is a  possibility that they can catch an earlier flight off the ice back to Kangerlussuaq, however, there are no guarantees of that happening just yet – with storms predicted in the forecast.
