May 19: We got it

This very unique sample was taken in the middle of the ice break! Thanks to the talent of Sacha, “god of pilots” in Igarka according to Anatolii, we were able to collect another Ieniseï sample.Although the anticipation for reaching this sampling point was high, finding a way to the main channel was easy for Sacha, as he avoided huge ice ridges, played with water currents, and stopped the hovercraft on the shelf of the ice right above the sampling point with ease. The result was that we collected the most colored sample ever on a major Arctic river. A perfect sampling day (and very happy researchers)!
