2007 Field Trip

A brief trip in April 2007 showed the glacier had lost over 10m since Nov.06

The new face of the glacier.

The cable from a "wired instrument" which was seen in November had been uncovered more as the ice melted. It was impossible to pull it - so the tilt meters or plugh-meter were certainly very embedded!

Using the dGPS it was possible to find the location of a hole we drilled in the ice (when it was tens of meters thick) and stand on the same area. Sadly this hole was not used for a probe.

For those who have experienced our short trips - this was the Toyota Prius which we drove from Bergen and got up the hairpin track easily. It only used 5l/100km of petrol across the 600km of mountainous roads.
