Austfonna Ice Cap

Austfonna Ice Cap
by Thomas Vijayan

I have visited this place several times before, but last year it was disheartening to witness the sea ice melting as early as June. Our ship was able to navigate through the melted ice and reach the ice cap. However, even the ice cap had begun melting earlier than usual last year, which was a concerning observation.
