The Arctic Research Group is excited to announce its next expedition to Svalbard. The intention is for an expedition field date of summer 2022 with the target location for the research area being Recherchefjorden, at the entrance to Bellsund, to the South of Longyearbyen.
Recherchefjorden is approximately a 140NM round trip from Longyearbyen by sea and a 90NM roundtrip flight. This proximity to transport facilities will allow for relatively economic transfers into and out of the research area, thus enabling a longer expedition period to be planned, with more researchers being involved.
Recherchefjorden is located approximately 80km SSW of Longyearbyen, on the Southern side of Bellsund, approximately 77.5 deg. N: 14.5 deg. W and within the northern region of Weddell Jarlsberg Land in the South Spitsbergen National Park.
Individuals wishing to put themselves forward for as possible participants in this next expedition should contact the Arctic Research Group through this website and include their research and outdoor experience CV and areas of interest and capability for potential research in Recherchefjorden, Svalbard.
