Marzena and Mojtaba are PhD students at York University in Toronto. They came here in Qikiqtarjuaq to learn about sea ice and snow measurements. I was pleased when their supervisor Christian Haas asked me if I could welcome them for one week of field work. We had various weather conditions, I took them to thick ice and low snow areas, as well as thin ice and thick snow areas, even to some very slushy places. Measurements went well and I had fun showing them all kind of tricks to get work going smoothly out on the ice.
