Last week, participants in the two projects gathered in Tromsø for the second ABC meeting. This year, the meeting was organised in two parallel sections: While the technology group spent the entire week in Tromsø, testing out equipment in an ice covered lake outside Tromsø (there was no sea ice left in Ramfjorden, so we had to move operations to a lake instead), the entire group met for a two-day meeting (Summary minutes PDF

latform-cluster for O
hysical and E
ensors) - is under control and according to plan. And so it is!
