In Longyearbyen

10 October 2021

After my visit to Ny-Ã…lesund, I am working one week at the SIOS knowledge center, which offers me great facilities for visiting scientists. I get office space and free housing.

The nights are dark and first snow on the ground.

A new information display. Unfortunately I miss the magnificent aurora during mid-night.

I make a video for a special event in the Forum in Groningen about climate change in the Arctic. I cannot participate, but still I can be present, as you can see on the big screen to the right. picture made by Anne Beaulieu

More signs of old accidents: coastal erosion
Coastal erosion forced Christiane and her family to move their house to the other side of the street. You can still see the foundation of the old location.

And at the campground, they are building a fence after a polar bear incident
