after having had nice and beautifull weather for several week, i decided to go ice-climbing and doing crevasse rescue with Björgunarsveitinia (rescue team) on Sunday. it was below zero but snowing a lot and quite some wind. it took us quite some whiel to get from reykjavik to Hveragerdi where the weather got a lot better, also one of the cars broke down so we had to swap for a big jeep!
at the glacier the weather was fairly good and we had a good day of climbing and learning a lot. as darkness crept in on us we walked down the glacier and drove back to town. i put some more pictures out there!
it was the first time i went up on my glacier, it was very good to see everything from above. i checked a gps position from this summer when i was doing field work and on the actual place the glacier retreated almost 30 meters.
the glacviers has also been measured in the end of november shoving a retreat of 47 meters, which isn´t a lot compared to the 134 meters last year. mayby the climate is shiting again, from warmer to colder...;0)
