3619 meters above sea level
Maximum & Minimum temperatures: -25 to -35°C
No doubt, this ice core has really challenged us. We started drilling last Saturday and have encountered a series of problems since then. Today, however, it seems like we reached a turning point. The optimism is back in the hard-working drilling team and maybe by tomorrow the second 90 meter ice core is retrieved.
Today, we also took part (by satellite phone) in a press seminar in connection with the visit of Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg to Troll Station in January 2008.

This contribution is from the log of the Norwegian-US Scientific Traverse team, who are en route from Troll Station to South Pole Station. Much more information can be found here.
