The plans were changed and we went up to the North Pole! The day were spent on the ice, taking photos, playing games and having a barbecue. Just having a great time at the North Pole. The weather today has been cloudy with some wind. Could had hoped for some sun, but it was ok. Now we are drifting with the ice, waiting to continue the seismic line. Scientist on board are using the time to do coring, CTD and an ice station. The plans for next week is to continue with the ice breaking for LSSL, that will be shooting seismic, and do some dredging.
