I am a scientist and University lecturer for remote sensing, cryosphere, and climate change. For my research I spent 15 field seasons with postgraduate students and colleagues in Antarctica, two seasons in Greenland, in Svalbard, and I did many field trips to glaciers in the European, Patagonian, and New Zealand Alps.

Arriving in Antarctica – Wolf’s Fang runway

Wolfgang in Wolf’s Fang: On 31st December 2018 I arrive in Antarctica coming from Capetown. In the Background are the the impressive mountains of Dronning Maud Land. The name Wolf’s Fang is taken from one of the tooth shaped mountains – it is the English translation of the Norwegian name. Here we have a short break before we continue our travel to our final destination, the Agulhas II icebreaker. All very exciting!
