The climate cruise 2011

The climate cruise has started. Onboard some of the expedition team from the Greenland season went home and the Svalbard team is on board. We have three guest lectures onboard to. All with different angel on the climate discussions in there lectures. 

The guests came onboard in the afternoon after some interesting excursions in Island and Rejkavik. Some went to the golden circle and had a walk around the worldfamous Gaysir area. Its a geothermal field where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble.
Then some had a visit to the blue lagoon and had a relax for body and soul.
We then left the harbor at 19.00 in a beautiful weather. We all are very exiting about the fact that we’re maybe able to get onshore on Jan Mayen. But we also know that it’s depending on the weather condition. The eavning we hade the saftydrill and a velcome sermoni for all guests following FRAM to Svalbard.
