Two members will undertake a recconnaissance of the area to be researched during August 2016. A flight to and from the site will allow photographs and video to be taken so that a more detailed appraisal of the research projects may be made.
This will reduce the need for recces on foot during the actual expedition and allow more time to be dedicated to research, thus minimising the time required in the area as well as reducing the potential footprint on the fragile tundra. Coordinatiuon with Norsk Polarinstituttet has provided the transport to and from the research area. The Group are grateful to the NPi for their part in allowing this.
