The island of Vagar in March.
Finally here! It is a sunny day of March and absolutely breathtaking views. We start with a 10 km hike righ away, having our suitcases with us in our rental car. We are still on our way from the airport to Torshavn. It means hiking in the island of Vagar in the area of Midvagur and Vatnid (the biggest lake in Faroes), and the waterfall Bosdalafossur. Snow we can see only very high up but not in the area where we are hiking.
The field research of the EU-Interact-BLACK-project in Faroes, in FINI and around, takes place in March 2019 by me and my colleague Laura Thölix, FMI. Our aim is to collect samples on snow, natural water and drinking water, for filtering and chemical analysis of black carbon, organic carbon and dust.
