Journées bien remplies sur la banquise

After 2 weeks pretty windy, we could repair the balloon and reinflate it with helium. Lighter than air again, linked to land with a very light but very strong thread, it reached easily 1500m with its valuable weather sensors. The same day, I went to the ice edge, 9km from shore, and I sent down the CTD as deep as possible in Storfjord. It is the best time of the year to move on pack ice, for us and for polar bears. Among the 14 animals we could see in the last 3 days, the 2 young cubs less than 4 months old, running after their mother, were the most touching.
