Today I took the time to explore the base of the glacier and the surrounding area, there is no real rush to get things done now as all that is left to do for the researchers is to perform the pump tests as soon as the ice completely oozes over the instruments. In about a week Pete, Knut and Ben will hike back up the glacier and go back into the tunnel for a few days. There they will take a pressure washer and pump water under the glacier. The water hopefully will spread out under the ice rather than leak back through a crack. If they are successful this will cause the glacier to slide just a small amount. Knut has accelerometers installed around the glacier and under it so he will be able to monitor any slippage. By that time I will fly back home. So now I am just trying to learn more about the area. I took a walk to the base of the glacier and just looked around a bit, it was really more of a day off.
