How to move “House” on the Greenland Ice Sheet

Living on the Greenland Ice Sheet has its interesting moments; one of the more interesting ones is moving “house” . All living, lab and mess tents have to be relocated every few weeks because during the main melt season we recorded an average of ~ 6 cm of ice melting each day. Below a suite of images of how this relocation happened just a few days before team 3 arrived.


Fun all around (specially for me who took the pictures only, while the others worked)

I am leading the interface-geochemistry group at the German Research Centre for Geosciences, GFZ in Potsdam, Germany.
We study various molecular level mineral fromation reactions and microbe-mineral-fluid interaction processes.
