Preparations towards camp closure continued today. In the underground ice core containers, we have completed the installation of the last shelves. The entrance was then closed with plywood and a tarp.

At RADIX, we have emptied the 3.2 km hydraulic tube and refilled the drums with the remaining silicone oil. We packed the logger and a number of smaller items. A total of 31 items are readied for shipping.
