You're breaking up...

At the end of last week a couple of the KAIRA team went over the the EISCAT site at Kiruna, Sweden. The purpose of the visit was to do a preliminary investigation of the set-up of the EISCAT_3D demonstrator array that is built there. We have a few photographs to share, and they will be posted later this week.

However on  the way there, we crossed a few rivers. As it is now well into spring these are starting to melt and break up. At one crossing, there was a huge jumble of broken ice. It looked quite striking... and quite treacherous too!
