April 24: Transect


After a night of snow (20cm), we went sampling and made transect across the Ieniseï.
8 water column profiles with multiparameter probe.
Weather was warm (+2°C) and almost sunny and light snow.
It seems there is good news from the south; we’ll wait until tomorrow to be sure.
Special thanks to Annick !

After 24h of travel, we have safely arrived in Igarka and we were
warmly welcomed by Igarka Geocryology Lab staff.
Unfortunately, we haven’t received our freight and custom clearance is
not finished in Krasnoyarsk.
Today, we conducted limited sampling and monitoring of Ienissei river.
