As time goes by...

...while the snow melts down.

Since the two aircrafts are grounded due to fog unfavourable for takeoff and landing at LYR airport one can take a look back in time for the last weeks. While already very valuable data could be collected on the research flights also the landscape in Longyearbyen changed quite significantly. Especially when adding two pictures from before the campaign in March and April.
Currently the snow suffers from the warm and moist air transported to the area! Arctic amplification on even shorter time scales...?, it's just spring! :-)
With the wind direction turning more to the north flying conditions are supposed to improve over the course of the week. Keep fingers crossed!
