Problems with ice continue

Sea ice is increasing rapidly now and causing trouble at Qaqqaliaq as well. Due to icy cliffs we are unable to go as far down on the cliff as we would like to and instead have the through the hydrophones into the water from 10 m height. You have to be good at aiming if you want to hit the free water on the first try. The ice was making a lot of noise but we were able to hear the bowhead whales in the background!
