The new raft

Last week we had the pleasure of assembling the new raft for the first time. There are a few minor adjustments that need to be made, but in the good hands of Johan and Dag Ove from the project section at UiT, we have no doubt that the raft will be ready for our fieldwork in the Alps this summer.

The raft is built with light materials and is collapsible. That is to be able to fit the raft in the back of a van and to make sure that it will be possible to carry the raft or to transport it by helicopter to sampling sites without road access.
