Challenging trips to install further sampling sites

Stefania and Preben went last days to further sampling sites in order to recover samples installed last season, exchange them with new ones and in addition, installing another new site near the coast. Their posts on these expeditions should appear soon on their blog-posts: see Preben, Stefania. Again, we show some images already below:

Installing a sample site at the plateau

Stefania and Preben went last Friday to the plateau in order to collect samples installed last season, install new collectors and go even further to install collectors at a new site. Read their story about this expedition at their blogs - the one of Preben and the one of Stefania. As an appetizer, below images from this expedition.
