Our fourth week started out with two days of hard slogging, carrying boats and sampling and camping gear five km around Aberdeen Canyon
On this expedition we want to find out what this means for the river water that flows from permafrost regions to the Arctic Ocean.
After long preparations, the helicopter expedition is finally starting for real.
The Nunataryuk/WP4 Coastal Waters team started their second expedition in the Mackenzie delta on 17 June 2019.
Last week everything went according to our meticulously prepared plan. This week the reality of doing field work in remote places of the Arctic gripped us.
The Takuvik-AWI team successfully completed the first WP4 expedition. A fortunate stroke of serendipity? Undeniably.
The countdown before the ultimate lift off has begun. Six team mates. Five airplane take-offs and landings. Four pieces of luggage each.
