During rough weather it was of course not possible to do surveys, but it it was not too much, we could sail to the next survey area for stand-by. Otherwise we would just drop the anchor in a sheltered place, - and wait - - - -

Also in ice it was impossible to do surveys of the obviously reason, that you cannot follow straight, pre planned lanes, when those lanes are obstructed by ice - - -
So,- again we had to find a sheltered cove and wait, - wait, - wait - - -

View to to opposite side
- untouched Greenland - and dead silent -
Note: There is nothing wrong with this picture. The white area at the top is in fact clouds covering the mountain tops.
