Spring Tide

Its spring tide on the Darwin glacier and this marks the half of our stay on the ice. Today the difference between low and high tide is 1.2m and the processes that we are interested in are most pronounced.

While this is a very busy time for the installed field stations we are filling gaps in our ice thickness map. When resting in our tents the constant rustle of the blown snow is only interrupted by the creaking of the bending ice bellow.

Or maybe it’s just dinner time and I’m hungry!
