Dale Anderson sent this message from Lat -69.473398 Lon 39.604533 at 11:17:09 AM EST January 15, 2018 11:17:09 AM EST “Keith, quick note to provide you with our current location at The Kizahashi Hut located at Skarvsnes, one of the islands of the archipelago.”

“The weather has been a bit snowy with low visibility so helo ops are not possible right now. Hope tomorrow’s weather is better, if so I will likely hike to nearby Lake Naga for a quick look. Weather permitting we will dive this lake on the 18th, sampling the benthos and retrieving instruments that have been in place for the last year.”

Cheers, Dale
