Too frozen to drill! Bad luck!

I am very disappointed! We finally weren’t able to core the lakes due to the unusually amount of snow cover of this year!
Different camera teams are filming Alain Hubert while he is coring the lake ice

The lakes were completely covered by snow, so we weren’t able to core them; they were simply completely frozen, as were the sediments. Alain drilled holes at several places but we weren’t successful. Hopefully, we will be able to sample these lakes in the future because I strongly believe they hold some nice potential for studying the deglaciation history and the microbial biodiversity of the region. We also did a reconnaissance in Vesthaugen and searched for lakes. While the regions was extraordinary beautiful, we didn’t find any lakes.
Cheers, Elie
