Today Luke departed on the ferry in the afternoon on his way back to Penn State. Victor worked on the radar imaging and is very concerned that he may not be able to make his system work in time for the next available helicopter. The electronics he has designed for his PhD thesis is quite complicated and uses a unique technique for radar imaging that would be cool to see work. He has by-passed a few attenuators and an amplifier in hopes that he can fly on Friday to collect data, it is all part of science, most of the time things do not work as planned. I walked to the moraine in the valley next to this one, from there you can see the ice cap and other glaciers. It is a much more rustic moraine than the one I am in, it is not developed for tourism. The interesting thing is that one hundred years ago the Svartisen glacier reached all the way out here and touched the fjord. Ships could come into a small ice house located on the edge of the glacier and take blocks of ice to cool their fish out at sea. I am learning a lot about glaciers from Ben and Knut and I am very encouraged that I can use all of the things I am learning in my classroom next year. It is a steep and quick learning curve for a teacher who has a physics degree, I am amazed at how easy it is for them to walk about here and point out amazing things, like the kettles in the ground formed by ice and the washboard moraines (the side of the glaciers). They look at rocks and geological features in ways that I never have.
