9 W Palander Icecap 10 km

10 5 m W Palander Icecap Disected icecap with ca 10 m vertical scarp showing crossbedding, truncations and sediment-rich horizons

12 AMASE 08 Personal Gear (I) Daily weather conditions are expected to be around -5 to10 ºC and windy with little or no precipitation. On a normal day plan to wear: Long underwear Long-sleeved (wool) shirt Wool socks Loose fit khaki pants Fleece jacket or wool sweater Windproof jacket/anorak Mountain boots (e.g. La Sportiva Lhotse GTX) Gaiters (to keep rubble out of your boots) Working gloves Wool hat Everbody should carry a backpack containing: Down jacket Thermos Lunch pack Water bottle Sun glasses At the Palander Icecap the backpack should also contain: Windproof cover pants Wool mittens w/windproof cover Scarf Spare wool hat and gloves Having a warm down jacket available is essential for long periods of work at the same field site or just hanging out on deck on R/V Lance. Make sure to bring a proper backpack! We recommend that you purchase your own gear prior to travel or in Longyearbyen.

13 AMASE 08 Personal Gear (II) Following established procedure when hunting for extraterrestrial life - all AMASE crew members are required to bring proper "Men in Black" attire as part of the field equipment. This means a black suite, black shoes and dark sunglasses combined with a white shirt and black tie (or simply a black dress for the ladies). MiB photo sessions in extreme environments is a longstanding AMASE tradition. NOTE: Sneakers, mountain boots (including covered in foil), ties made of black tape or with colors/patterns and other unsuitable items do not pass! Contact your local tailor for advice
