4 September breaking ice at N84 48’ W02 28’

Making our way south at good speed and do not expect any delays unless something unforeseen happens. There is still plenty of ice, but now we start seeing meltponds again. We also see very large amounts of "dirty ice"; ice which is brown or green from biological activity. The day after our departure from the ice camp we had the mandatory Crayfish Party; everyone had a very good time. Now we are starting to plan for the disembarkment in Longyearbyen and for demobilization in Landskrona later in September.
