Sea ice sampling in Mohnbukta, eastern Svalbard, in May 2020. The thickest sea ice (135 cm) was found here during our 2020 sea-ice survey. Eastern Svalbard is much colder than western Svalbard, with thicker sea ice and more snow on top, which delays the start of the algal bloom there compared to western Svalbard. Photo: Janne E.
