Svalbard, Isfjorden area, 23nd July – 31st July 2021.
Departure from Palanga/Klaipeda airport. Photo: before flight, still with all our luggage.
12:50. Arrival with SAS from Oslo to Longyearbyen.
Our baggage (12 pieces in total) has been lost by SAS. Transfer to the Polish "Hunter Hut". The team goes to the Svalbardbutikken and other shops for the most necessary warm clothing. Rafal Swietonowski (Pole Position Logistics) transports boxes and bags stored at the Pole Position (delivered by the yacht "Magnus Zaremba" to Svalbard). Visit to ‘Oceania’, where J. Zosia Legeżyńska and Kajetan Deja provide us with supplementary materials (formalin, etc) needed for the work. Photos: the hospitable hunter's hut and Longyearbyen.
Ten of the 12 pieces of luggage arrive at 4:00 pm, while two pieces did not appear. Preparing logistics. Purchasing gasoline for the generator and some food for the trip. A test flight of a drone is performed in Longyearbyen (outside of the ‘no-fly’ zone). Photo: Buying gasoline at the world most northern fuel station.
Embarkment to the yacht ‘Magnus Zaremba’, preparation for the trip. Waiting for the rest of the lost luggage to arrive till 3 pm (no result). The crew of M. Zaremba is working to solve technical problems with the yacht, the start of the sailing is delayed. Measurement with AlgaeTorch (chlorophyll a and cyanobacteria measurements at the surface of the sea) and Secchi disk from the yacht in the Longyearbyen port. Approx. at 7 pm start sailing towards Polypinten and St. Johnsfjorden. Photos: Grześ Szymański, the sailor at M. Zarema, preparing for the sailing... and sailing (eventually).
Measurement with AlgaeTorch and Secchi disk from the yacht. Using a M. Zaremba’s small inflatable boat (dingy) we are testing the procedure of disembarkment on shore. Visiting the walruses’ colony. Collecting terrestrial moss samples for microfauna (4 samples). Drone flight for mapping of beach wreck. Bear footprints (probably a week or more old) sighted in the area.
St. Johnsfjorden (arrival at ca. 5 pm).
In the fjord. Measurements in the water column (with the probe - temperature, salinity, pH, conductivity, dissolved O2, turbidity, cyanobacteria total biomass and chlorophyll a; Secchi disk) at one point. At the surface: salinity 27,94, temperature 5,4; at 6 m salinity 34,84, temperature 2,9. Measurement with AlgaeTorch and Secchi disk from the yacht. The team goes onshore to test the procedure of work in the lakes. First two people to go on shore: Aleksej (our main gunman) and Jonas (the drone-man). Three drone observation flights were carried out to find the lake for the study and the best route to it, and to observe polar bears (if any). Then the rest of the team is transported, and our small inflatable rowboat ("hydro-force") is towed to the shore. All sampling equipment and inflatable boat are transported to a small lake, approx. 1 km from the coast.
Small lake (not connected to the glacier, ca. 50 m, max depth ca 2 m). Samples taken: zooplankton (2 samples), bottom sediments (3 samples) and limno-terrestrial substrata for microfauna (3 samples). Measurements in the water column with the probe, Secchi disk – at 3 points. Samples for dissolved gas (N2, O2, CH4, etc) and samples for nutrients (NH4, NO2, NO3, PO43, total N, total P) at one point in the middle of the lake. Samples for dissolved metals (Fe, Mn) – 3 samples in one point. Water samples for CDOM (colored dissolved organic matter) – three samples, phytoplankton – one sample. Drone flight to map the lake and its surroundings. On land, near the lake. Collecting terrestrial moss samples for microfauna (8 samples). Intertidal zone. Search for macroplastics with attached organisms, live blue mussels Mytilus and mussel shell deposits (nothing found). 2 samples of Gammarus, 1 sample of Littorina and 1 sample of Semibalanus were taken. Samples of macroalgae were taken at five sites within a 3 km transect for calibration of satellite image classification.
On landing, the drone was sent to observe the working place, incl. possible presence of polar bears (four observational flights). Three sites have been investigated in the lagoon system: A – nearest to the glacier (deep > 15 m); B – in the middle of the lagoon system (deep = 3.5 m), and C – the most distant from the glacier (shallow, < 1 m). Seals were observed near the landing site. Lagoon system, point C (the most distant from the glacier). Measurements in the water column (probe) at one point, only surface. Samples for dissolved gas, nutrients and metals at one point (three replicas for everything). Water samples for CDOM – three samples, phytoplankton – one sample. Genetic samples in the water column for metabarcoding of bacteria involved in the nitrogen and carbon cycling. Zooplankton (6 samples). One sample of macroalgae taken with a rake from the shore of the lake.
Afterwards inflatable boat and all sampling equipment is transported to the next point (‘B’) in the lagoon system and is left there on shore until the next day. At site B a grab (rake) was used from the shore to catch macrophytes but none found. Intertidal zone. Search for macroplastics with attached organisms (nothing found). Photos: Jonas sending the drone, landing on shore, working moments, the lagoon system in Eidembukta.
Measurement with AlgaeTorch and Secchi disk from the yacht. On landing, two observational flights of the drone. Team splits into two groups with Aleksej, Tobia and Dzmitry continuing work in the lagoon system and Sergej, Jonas and Mantas working in the intertidal zone. Both groups are armed with guns.
Lagoon system, sites A – nearest to the glacier and B – in the middle of the lagoon. Measurements in the water column (probe) at one point, from surface and near bottom. Samples for dissolved gas, nutrients and metals at one point (3 replicas for everything). Water samples for CDOM – three samples, phytoplankton- one sample. Genetic samples in the water column for 16s rRNA, 18S rRNA and metabarcoding of bacteria involved in the nitrogen and carbon cycling (3 replicas). Measurements with the probe (temperature, salinity, pH, conductivity, dissolved O2, turbidity) along the transect (6 sites) moving from the sampling point B to point A. At each site a water column profile is measured from surface to 7m deep. We noticed the presence of thermocline and then halocline in the water column, however our probe is too short to reach the bottom. Zooplankton (6 samples), bottom sediments (15 samples), limno-terrestrial substrata (16 samples). On land, near the lagoon system. Collecting terrestrial moss samples for microfauna (5 samples). Intertidal zone. Search for macroplastics with attached organisms (nothing found). One alive specimen of Mytilus found in the littoral; >50 empty shells collected on shore, some with rizoids of sea weeds attached to the shells, some still with tissues. One sample of Gammarus, Littorina and Semibalanus were taken. Two flights above the intertidal zone to map the beach wrack and presence of macroalgae (kelps). 18 samples of macroalgae have been taken for satellite image calibration. One flight of the drone to map the macroalgae and beach wreck. A sample of feathers is taken from a dead bird (Fulmar glacialis) found at the littoral for the analysis of heavy metal content.
Fresh (overnight) tracks of a bear appeared near point C. Seals were seen at the sampling points B and A of the lagoon. Three seals fought against the current in the river, trying to get into the lagoon from the sea. Photos: sampling in the littoral zone, Tobia on the lake, bear’s foot print close to the sampling point C.
Measurement with AlgaeTorch and Secchi disk from the yacht.
On landing, an observational flight of the drone. The whole team brings equipment to the distant lake Lovenvatnet.
Lovenvatnet lake (in a valley, close to the glacier, ca. 1000 m in length, 400 m width, max depth > 15 m). Measurements in the water column (probe) at 1 point, from surface and near bottom. Samples for dissolved gas, nutrients and metals at one point (three replicas for everything). Water samples for CDOM – three samples, phytoplankton- one sample. Genetic samples in the water column for metabarcoding of bacteria involved in the nitrogen and carbon cycling. With the probe a transect of 3 points is made, from the middle of the lake to the shore (temperature, salinity, pH, conductivity, dissolved O2, turbidity). One observational and one “mapping” flight above the lake. Zooplankton (6 samples), bottom sediments (9 samples), limno-terrestrial substrata (12 samples). At Lonvenvatnet lake a grab was used to catch macrophytes from the shore but none found; pieces of bivalve mollusks shells were found. On land, near the lake. Collecting terrestrial moss samples for microfauna (3 samples) Intertidal zone. Search for macroplastics with attached organisms (nothing found). Collection of dry material of Mytilus shells on the shore (> 30 specimens, many shells of young mollusks 15-20 mm, never found in 2019).
Photos: Work in the Lovenvatnet lake and after work on boar M. Zaremba.
The team is divided into two groups: Alexej, Tobia and Dzmitry are working on a small lake and in the river valley (connecting the lake Lovenvatnet and the fjord), and Sergej, Jonas and Mantas are working in the intertidal zone on the opposite shore of the fjord. Both groups are armed with guns. Observational and mapping flights of the drone, inter alia to see the route to the bird colony. A small lake (not connected to the glacier, ca. 30 m, max depth 1.2 m). Measurements in the water column (probe) at 1 point, only surface. Samples for dissolved gas, nutrients and metals at one point (three replicas for everything). Water samples for CDOM – three samples, phytoplankton- one sample. Zooplankton (4 samples), bottom sediments (9 samples), limno-terrestrial substrata (7 samples) The river valley (a transect from the Lovenvatnet lake to the sea). Mosses (21 sample), soil (21). Intertidal zone. Search for macroplastics with attached organisms (nothing found). Five alive specimens of Mytilus found in the littoral (same area as in 2019). Two samples of Gammarus, Littorina and Semibalanus were taken, one in the innermost part closer to the glacier, and one approx. in the middle of the fjord. Collection of Mytilus dry shell material on shore. The trip to the bird colony (end of the fjord) to collect feathers is canceled, as very fresh (2 hours or less) tracks of bears (female with a bear cub) were found in the intertidal zone (towards the bird colony).
Photos: Captain Eugeniusz Moczydłowski making food for the team (the canister with the remaining drinking water is located on the deck), the investigated small lake in Trygghamna, fresh foot prints of bears, leaving the fjord.
Disembarked from the yacht ‘Magnus Zaremba’ at ca. 11 am. Received two pieces of luggage lost by SAS (one of them with the underwater camera parts, another with a second freezer). Packing of equipment, samples and material. Meeting with Vanessa Pitusi at UNIS. Placing frozen samples at UNIS in two portable freezers.
Visit to UNIS (excursion, great thanks to Vanessa!). Preparation of equipment and samples fixed with alcohol and formalin for storage at Pole Position store place until ‘Oceania’ picks them up. Photos: in LYR, Vanessa gives a tour in UNIS.
Departure from LYR to Klaipeda.
Arrival at home at 3-4 am (SAS flight was late again), all returned home safe-and-sound.

Plastic litter sampling at P1 and P2, first freshwater sample collected at K1 waypoint (Ytterdalselva). First river “crocs style” crossing of our trip (Ytterdalselva). We expect only two or three more rivers to cross following days.
From Lågnesbukta to Marvågen (C2 → C3, 16 km). First we headed west and after reaching Lagneset we turned north. Next few days we will walk north until we reach Isfjord Radio settlement. Litter sampling at points P3 and P4. Gammarus G2 and G3 samples collected. Lonely walrus spotted on the beach in western part of Lågnesbukta (N77° 44.20195' E13° 46.684'). Ruins of Pomor house spotted nearby. Near C2 (N77° 44.692' E13° 48.759') we observed leaking, rusted, ~100 l steel barrel with diesel fuel (specific smell), traces of leaking fuel were observed in the area (see photos).
From Marvågen to Lisettholmane (C3 → C4, 18 km). As all of us are keeping all-night bear watches we decided to arrange shooting range and had some shooting practice. Plastic litter sampling at P5, Gammarus sampling at G4, freshwater sampling at K2. Few swimming seals spotted during the day.
From Lisettholmane to Isfjorflya (C4 → C5, 15 km). Plastic sampling at P6, Gammarus sampling at G5, freshwater sampling at K3, K4 and K5. Walrus colony observed 2 km south from C5.
