We are now on our way back after 10 days in the surroundings of Abisko. The final fieldwork for this season provided a variety of weather including rain, snow, hail, a bit of sun and northern lights. We managed to collect all the shrubs needed for Christopher Leifsson’s MSc thesis, took the last flux measurements for Karolin Gunnarsson’s BSc thesis and collected about 90 kg of soil for future incubation and biomarker analysis. However, no permafrost was detected at the Goaivojavri where we thought we would find some…
Jonas Stenström from Untamedscience was a pleasant company (although it took a while to get used to all his cameras…) and soon there will be a movie from the field campaign.
Enjoy the pictures above.
