Müller Ice Cap Daily Report Tuesday May 30th
Over and out
Saturday May 27th, Dorthe and David made it to Resolute with the Twin Otter. Sunday May 28th, Tamara started her journey south from Resolute, with the first mission to find the Lisa box, that never reached us, in Iqaluit. Irony was that a cargo plane delivered the cargo to Resolute the same evening… Tuesday May 30th, Daniel and Niels left for Ottawa. Dorthe will leave Wednesday May 31st and David Friday June 1st. There are four planes each week going south with 20 seat each so it is not always possible to leave as fast a desired.
We have had a good season and have successfully mapped the thickness and internal layers of the Müller ice cap. It has been a great and positive experience to be in the hands of PCSP – THANKS to all. Also, a great THANKS to the crews of the Twin Otters for so diligently landing and departing from the rough snow surface of Müller and finding us even in very low clouds. Also THANKS for great hosting at EUREKA.
With these words, we close the 2023 diary with a 2024 logo suggestion from Tamara. Goodbye from Daniel, David, Dorthe, Niels and Tamara.
