Welcome to Arctic Daily!

A daily glimpse of my time in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard as Logistics Engineer for the AWIPEV polar research station.

Snowmobile season

Snowmobile season

Spring is especially nice here because we can use snowmobiles to go around, and they are basically the only vehicles authorised outside of town. Many scientists also come at this season, because they use them to go to their measuring sites.

Le printemps est très agréable ici car nous pouvons nous balader en motoneige, qui est le seul moyen de transport autorisé hors de la ville. Beaucoup de scientifiques viennent aussi à cette saison car cela leur permet d'aller sur leurs zones de mesure, sur les glaciers par exemple.
