Friday December 8:

It was a good day, with good weather. Many tasks on the field were planned. All the skidoos were used, and on our side, Frank, Christophe and I left the camp to go to our sampling site at the Northern part of the Ice Rise. We quickly drove 15km from the camp and after the white wide infinities, a bluish one appears with deposits of some ice cubes … We could not believe our eyes… real icebergs. Even if they are far away, they are gorgeous!!  I had time to observe them because I had to collect 140L (in volume) of snow!! The three poles are in place. We did a good job.
