|Together, we go searching for a spot where a photo from a glacier was taken in 1918. The glacier has shown a spectacular retreat. We all are impressed by the change, but aklso by the beauty of the site, the rumbling of falling ice in the glacier and the amount of blue icebergs in the fjord. More about calving glaciers can be found here.|
|Why are there so many foreign stations in this village? Marieke interviews Oddvar Midtkandal, director of Kings Bay and me as station manager of the Netherlands Arctic Station. Earlier I have heard them talk about the length of Oddvar. How can you have some scenery instead of blue air behind the man while filming? On the left picture, you can see the solution. Place the director on the vulnerable tundra and film from a high point on the road!|
