"The camp at Lake Untersee is now closed, we pulled the last three tents down early yesterday morning and completed packing our cargo into the sea container with the remainder going onto the other two cargo sleds."

"The last week and a half has seen a lot of variability in the weather with katabatics visiting us frequently - this morning at 6am we had gusts hitting 50 knots."

"The last few days have been very nice with mild temperatures (-7°C to +2°C), sunshine and little wind."

"The hole melter was returned, but unfortunately it still does not work properly and we are unable to use it to make a dive hole or melt out the light sensors we left in the water column last year."

"Last night was a bit noisy with 40-50 knot winds rattling the tents, but they were not destructive so all is well here at Lake Untersee."

"We had a very blustery night which made for very noisy tents, but the camp is intact so we are in good shape thus far."

"We have a clear but very blustery day here right now, winds are 30 knots, gusting 45 at times and air temps around -5°C."

"Enclosed is a copy of our latest general weather forecast - we use the Novo forecast since it is only about 100 km from us."

"Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, we have just been busy trying to make up for lost time due to the previous storm and taking advantage of the relatively nice weather we have had lately."

"The last two days have been pretty nice weather-wise, and very productive."
