Aloha from the Arctic, Justin here. Day three in Greenland was all about Icebreaker 2. We returned to the north ridge fracture zone (NRFZ) above the EVV lakes which we scoped out for IB2 the day before. Even though the spot was the easiest we knew of to get to from the road, it still required a roughly 800 foot hike up the ridge with all of our equipment. It took several trips, but we got it all.
Once we got all of the equipment we set everything up to prep for drilling. Once we had everything ready, a few glam shots then time to drill!
While we drilled, Lisa took samples of the cuttings for later analysis.
Alas the arctic sun plays tricks on the mind, and before we knew it, it was late and we needed to head back to town. IB2 helped perform some important science up on the north ridge. I must say, IB2 looks pretty impressive from a far up on that hill.
