Yesterday evening, 22 August 2015, the Dutch expedition to the Arctic Svalbard archipelago reported that the expedition had succeeded in constructing a weather station on a glacier in the east of Spitsbergen island.
People had gone by boat from Edgeøya island, expedition headquarters, to Spitsbergen. There, they walked 5 kilometer up the glacier. It then took three more hours to assemble and test the weather station.
