Welcome to Arctic Daily!

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

All the way down

All the way down

This is a crevasse on Brøggerbreen glacier where a meltwater channel goes down in summer, shaping the ice as it flows. It's about 40 meters deep and the descent is completely in the air thanks to big snow lips at the top. The way up, on the same rope is quite tiring !

Cette crevasse dans le glacier Brøgger est l'endroit où un canal d'eau de fonte passe à travers le glacier, en sculptant ces formes dans le glacier. La descente de 40 mètres se fait entièrement dans le vide grâce à l'accumulation de neige à la surface du glacier, tout comme la montée, qui est un peu physique !
