Enroute to Greenland: Boarding at CPH

The first joint US-EISCAT International Incoherent Scatter Radar Workshop will begin tomorrow in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. For the participants from the EISCAT side, the only way to get there is to fly from Copenhagen (CPH) to Kangerlussuaq (SFJ) on Air Greenland. Most participants have arrived already yesterday at Copenhagen. Now the group is waiting at the gate for boarding the big red plane in the photo above. We're all excited to fly out to this exotic location.

During the coming week, we will update the blog directly from the workshop — internet connection permitting.

Oh, if you are wondering about those UFOs flying in formation and invading Copenhagen, then rest assured: they are reflections of the ceiling lights in this part of the terminal; the photo was taken through a glass window.
