Saying goodbye to our comrades at Lake Linne in the morning.  They were going to the south end to collect lake sediment data and we were going to the north end to survey.

Another day in the Karst Lake region.  Beautiful scenery; on a nice day you can see the ocean, the glacier and beautiful outcrops of rocks.  Today we were surveying and mapping the area.  Cruise ships and fishing boats pass by in the fjord during the day.

Looks good enough to dive in but it is the arctic and so that would not be a good idea with a typical temperature of 6 degrees C.

It looks good enough to jump in!

On our way home, Berit carries her Norwegian flag to show her national pride.  Cara just joined in on the fun.

After dinner, we had a lecture on permafrost given by UNIS professor Dr. Hanne Christiansen.  The students are happy to get together to hear her lecture because she is very well known in her field and will be working for the next few days in the Kapp Linne, Svalbard region.
