3 Juli 2007 19.30I am invited for a lecture on the Maryshev, a ship operated by Ocean Wide Expeditions. During my presentation, the ship continues into the fjord towards the largest glacier. The captain is not afraid to approach the glacier to a distance of only 30 meters. Beautiful transparent shades of white and blue.
The apporach is not without risk. See the video on the right. Two blocks of ice fall down the glacier. The top one explodes as a kind of cluster bomb. Note the chunks of ice falling in between the glacier and the ship.
