December 2010

In the polar night of the High Arctic, the station never sleeps. Our tasks remain the same: maintaining, running and checking all instruments, welcoming and supporting our guests in their projects. It seems to be a routine life for many, but it isn't! There is always something exciting to learn out of it. That's why today we are very pleased to open a window over our dark sky: AWIPEV has its new website online. Follow us and our scientific guests in their work and daily life. News will be published on regular basis. In addition you will find a lot of useful information, if you have planned to visit the base. In the tradition of the Advent time, we are celebrating Christmas with our neighbour stations and all the people of Ny-Ålesund around a Feuerzangenbowle. As far as we are, we would like to share this moment with you too... Frohe Weihnachten, Joyeux Noel, God jul, Merry Christmas Sébastien, Christian and Thomas Overwintering Team 2010-2011
