The expedition comes to an end

[06. September 2016] 

Today we have completed our research programme at the Knipovich Ridge south of Fram Strait. We are now on the transit toward Tromsø, where we will arrive in the morning of 6 September.

At the 79° Glacier

[29. August 2016] 

Yesterday we finished our investigations in the close vicinity of the 79°N glacier. Now R/V Polarstern is exploring the southern end of Westwind Trough on the inner shelf. We had already paid a visit to the outer part of this depression earlier in the expedition.

Working in Norske Trog

[23. August 2016] 

Meanwhile R/V Polarstern has worked her way toward the inner shelf of Northeast Greenland. We have reached the transition from Norske Trough to Westwind Trough, which is where the 79°N glacier meets the sea. In this region, sea ice often prevails the whole year round.

Back at the Greenland Ice Shelf

[16. August 2016] 

In sunny weather and light sea ice conditions we find ourselves once again on the shelf of Greenland  –this time in Norske Trough. In the beginning of the week we were able to accomplish most of the oceanographic, biological and biogeochemical workload planned along the zonal transect through central Fram Strait along 78°50’N. Subsequently we added to the mooring array deployed along the Greenwich Meridian in the second week of the expedition the southernmost mooring at 78°10’N.

Questions about climate change

[08. August 2016] 

After having reached the northernmost point of the expedition at the end of last week, we moved southeastward across the East Greenland Current toward the continental shelf of Northeast Greenland, that we reached at the outlet of Westwind Trough.
