Joining the dots
In Svalbard, there are no trails or paths as soon as you leave Longyearbyen. We let the Science we want to do dictate the route, while keeping in mind logistics and safety.
We have decided that "joining the dots" between the different research stations scattered on the archipelago would be very useful. Such a transect has never been done on skis, which guarantees clean sampling, and the preservation of the environment.
Here is what the route will probably look like (there might me minor changes depending on the latest conditions in 2020 and on the science goals).
