Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If I would tell one more story, it would be that I lived and worked for four years in Denmark, in Copenhagen, often going to the Geophysical Institute of the University at Haraldsgade 6.

Those were the days of the first Greenland ice corings, the cores being brought in in crates of straw, to be stored in the cellar. The Copenhagians were strong on isotope studies. Also then (early nineties) the airborne Greenland gravity project was done, measuring gravity (and magnetism, and the depth of the bedrock using ice penetrating radar) over all of Greenland in a collaboration between the Danish Survey and Cadastre (where I worked) and the US Naval Research Lab.

I would have had an opportunity to visit Summit, Greenland in those days... sometimes I still feel sorry I didn't. But then, I visited Iceland a few times.
