Life at 81 North

We are the northernmost people in the world (or we would like to think so)!

-Erin Kunisch (PhD candidate, UiT)

Snowy and dark! We are waiting for the multinet to come up from the water.
Cold enough at 81N that the snow makes nice patterns on the boat.
Live Arctic creatures! There are ice associated amphipods and a Clione limacina in this bucket.
Preparing the multinet before it goes overboard.
The nets tended to freeze in the Arctic weather, so we had to bring buckets of hot water out to melt the ice that had accumulated on them.
