Welcome to Arctic Daily!

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

The rocks reappear

The rocks reappear

With the sun having shined for a full week and the temperature having risen above zero, most of the snow is now melted or melting. The landscape is changing dramatically from almost completely white to mostly gray and the glaciers are showing their nicest blue. We still enjoy climbing in the mountains around, only we are back to walking as the skis are back in storage.

Avec le retour du soleil et des températures au dessus de zéro pendant une semaine, la neige a beaucoup fondu en seulement quelques jours. Le paysage jusqu'à maintenant très blanc est maintenant tacheté de gris et les glaciers on retrouvé leur bleu éclatant. Les skis sont rangés, mais nous profitons toujours des montagnes, que l'on gravit maintenant en marchant !
