Arc­tic expe­di­ti­ons 2014: Spits­ber­gen and Jan May­en

House news: we will offer 4 exci­ting arc­tic voy­a­ges in 2014, to Spits­ber­gen and Jan May­en.

The expe­di­ti­on to Jan May­en has been in a plan­ning stage for quite some time, but the details are almost fina­li­zed so the trip can be boo­ked soon. If you have alre­a­dy cont­ac­ted me about the Jan May­en expe­di­ti­on 2014, then you will get a mes­sa­ge the next days befo­re the final details go public on the web­site.

We will also run 3 trips in Spits­ber­gen: two with SV Anti­gua, one in high sum­mer in late July/August and one in Sep­tem­ber. And in August, we want to offer “advan­ced Spits­ber­gen”: with a small sai­ling boat and a small group (about 10 pas­sen­gers) to the remo­te parts of Sval­bard. For tho­se who are out for a very inti­ma­te, acti­ve expe­ri­ence of natu­re and excel­lent pho­to­gra­phic oppor­tu­ni­ties, inclu­ding wild­life. The Spits­ber­gen voy­a­ges are expec­ted to be Ger­man spea­king, but for tho­se of you who speak a bit of Ger­man and are not afraid of a bunch of Germans/Swiss, plea­se have a look at the more detail­ed descrip­ti­ons for the Arc­tic 2014!

Lon­gye­ar­by­en CO2 neu­tral?

Will Lon­gye­ar­by­en be Norway’s first CO2 sett­le­ment? This is the visi­on of a group of sci­en­tists within UNIS (Uni­ver­si­ty in Lon­gye­ar­by­en). The geo­lo­gy around Lon­gye­ar­by­en seems sui­ta­ble for long-term sto­rage of lar­ge amounts of CO2 (CCS, car­bon cap­tu­re and sto­rage): porous sand­sto­nes are able to host lar­ge volu­mes of vola­ti­les (liquids, gas), and over­ly­ing lay­ers of fine-grai­ned sedi­ments seal this natu­ral sto­rage off to pre­vent vola­ti­les from esca­ping into the atmo­sphe­re. First tests with water ins­tead of gas went well.

The next step should be to press a lar­ger volu­me of CO2 into the ground in Advent­da­len, whe­re the test sited is situa­ted, to test the sui­ta­bi­li­ty of the sedi­ments under more rea­li­stic con­di­ti­ons. The­re are three opti­ons: sepa­ra­ting CO22
