Winter is coming

After several good field days with bad weather, we had our last field day at Disko. Today we visited Lyngmarksbugt and found the peat coring location we where looking for. About one meter of peaty sediment, with maybe 2000 years worth of climatic signals.

While we where doing the drilling the weather changed from windy and rainy to sunny and nice, a beautiful scene.

Later, on the way back to the Arktisk Station, a certain noise started to appear from the village. The noise of packs of howling wolves. The sledge dogs smelled the incomming fresh cold air from over the sea carrying snow, their ticket to action. If there actually will be snow this week needs to be seen, but the temperatures will drop soon. Slowely but surely, Winter is coming to Greenland.
