Living with failing snow mobiles and the worst storm yet
Yesterday the team attempted to reach the old 'PARCA' ice core site, but after 17 km again a snow mobile died... Got it working again but decided to return to camp for safety. Good call! They changed plans and Alex and Horst achieved to retrieve a very nice core with some interesting findings at 2250 m above sea level, which was 31 km up-slope from camp. Meanwhile Mike and Karen also delivered: 30 km of radar measurements towards the former KAN_U camp and the installation of an IMAU automated GPS 'S11'.
