Boundless, white horizon reveals science
Thick fog hid the midnight sun for the Summer solstice, but the Green Edge team is gaining some great scientific experiences onboard the ice-breaker Amundsen.
Leg 1A neared its end as the Amundsen helicopter flew scientists to Qikiktarjuaq on June 23rd. Leg 1B will last three more weeks until July 14th. During this part of the cruise, they will transect across the Marginal Ice Zone from solid sea ice to open waters as many times as possible, across the entire width of Baffin Bay from Greenland coast to Qikiqtarjuaq (cruise plan).
