Station is opened
6 June 2023
Mo Verhoeven is the first person arriving at the station. More will follow in a few days (see previous post.
There is still a lot of snow, some places up to a meter. Melting is happening fast. Since my arrival, 5 hours ago, 2/3 of the tundra around Solvatnet has become snowfree. There is also still fast ice in the fjord. Today, there has been observed a polar bear on Observasjonsholmen, the first in the past 2 weeks. Safety instructions by AWIPEV wwere very good as always.
Below also three pictures made from the plane flying to Ny-Ålesund.
