GREENLAND 2002 - Niels Holgersen Nunatakker

OBJECTIVE:  Exploration of the unmapped glaciers and summits of the Niels Holgersen Nunatakker, East Greenland.  NHN is located in the high arctic.

LOGISTICS:  Due to the extremely remote location of NHN, a series of Twin Otter flights and refueling stops are required.  The team will meet in Reykjavik, Iceland and then travel via a commercial flight to Akureyri in NE Iceland.  Here the team will prepare supplies and equipment to be loaded on to a Twin Otter plane.  The team will then fly to Constable Point located on the coast of East Greenland.  This stop will enable the Twin Otter to be refueled and link logistics with other expeditions in order to reduce transport costs.

TEAM:  The team consists of five climbers from the United Kingdom and one from the United States.  Most team members have participated in at least one previous expedition to Greenland.
