300 m from M3, Sembla had a breakdown with all the glaciologists – and M3 has been cleared.
This morning the glaciologists went on their traverse. Only 300 meters from M3, the drive shaft
Sembla broke. After two hours they could continue with a shaft from
Lasse. Afterwards, Jan Erik welded the broken shaft, so all the vehicles are now working.
At M3 all the equipment has been taken down, packed and secured. Tomorrow we start the
transportation to the boat
Mary Arctica with the container with ice cores from the glaciologists. At the site, a
weather station will also be put up.
Weather: Sunny, - 3°C. Forecast: Increasing wind to 15 m/s, snow Tuesday and Wednesday. Clear
weather Thursday and increasing wind Friday.
