Dark Snow Touches Down Deep in Ice Sheet – Core Samples Bagged
July 9, 2013
I never worked on a meticulously planned ambitious project that didn’t turn into an improvised as you go masterpiece. – Dark Snow Supporter
Quick update: The DarkSnowProject team touched down on deep in the heart of the Greenland Ice Sheet on monday. In an unusual helicopter expedition, the team refueled midway at the Dye 2 science station, and continued on to the Greenland Saddle, topographical divide of the ice sheet, deep in the interior, at 8700 foot elevation.
The team raced the clock, drilling shallow ice cores, taking Spectra, digging a Snow pit despite driving, drifting powder, shooting concurrent video and audio – and made it safely back to Kangerlussuaq.
Pictures for now. Much, much more to follow.
We fly again today.
