A crack can turn within hours into a kind of ridge and then open again. This is a perfect example for the dynamic of our new home. Our ice floe is characterised by an unusually stable area, which we are confident can serve as a good basis and point of departure for establishing a complex research camp. Other parts of the floe are typical of the new Arctic,
which is home to thinner, less stable ice. And precisely this combination makes it very well suited to our scientific projects.
