Frozen Five welcomes new team member

From earlier this week, the Frozen Five expedition has a new member. Ulli Neumann, our heroic tester of the tracer unit, will complete our team. The rest of the team is extremely delighted to have Ulli onboard, with the only concern expressed regarding the fact that our name no longer works. However, Ulli’s Arctic experience, great character and skills for almost any situation make him a perfect addition to our team that will greatly enhance the chances of success for us.

Ulli is a Master’s student of glaciology at the University of Svalbard (and the University of Oslo, though he spends very little time in Oslo, a place he describes as “the town which has more than one shop next to each other”), looking at the mass balance of Bogerbreen, a glacier about 10 km away from Longyearbyen. He has spent the best part of the last 3 years living, studying and working on Svalbard, visiting its most remote corners (including Nordaustlandet and Edgeoya) as part of his work with the University of Svalbard. He is often seen in the company of his four-legged friends that accompany him on various trips, summer or winter, across the Svalbardian wilderness.

Welcome to the Frozen Five Ulli!

Cogratulations Ulli, the team is very lucky to have you and I'm sure you are right at home.
Just remember, move like a kangaroo, not an elephant.
