I just love the photos from Svalbard and your journals are great!
I know that this year's expedition to Lake Linne is shorter than in previous years. Can Mike, Al, or Steve comment on what they hope to accomplish or wrap-up during these two weeks? Also, what are they going to do with all the data they have collected over the past 3 years? What do they plan on doing in the future (if anything) with regards to the REU program?
Have a great time! You have a great group of people to work with.
