The surprises of science

Going through data is always interesting, as you never know what to expect. There are always surprises. Like this Arctic Fox passing by one of our timelapse cameras. And I finally figured out when the lake started to drain. We spent two months working hard to monitor the formation and the drainage of a glacier dammed lake. But we never managed to see the drainage, the lake just didn’t want to drain. In the end our time was up and we had to leave. I left some instruments behind, which we managed to all recover in several attempts. It turns out the lake started to drain 3.5 hours after we flew over it in the plane that took us home. What an irony…
