AMASE 08 Personal Gear (I)

  • Daily weather conditions are expected to be around -5 to10 ºC and windy with little or no precipitation.
  • On a normal day plan to wear:
  • Long underwear
  • Long-sleeved (wool) shirt
  • Wool socks
  • Loose fit khaki pants
  • Fleece jacket or wool sweater
  • Windproof jacket/anorak
  • Mountain boots (e.g. La Sportiva “Lhotse GTX”)
  • Gaiters (to keep rubble out of your boots)
  • Working gloves
  • Wool hat
  • Everbody should carry a backpack containing:
  • Down jacket
  • Thermos
  • Lunch pack
  • Water bottle
  • Sun glasses
  • At the Palander Icecap the backpack should also contain:
  • Windproof cover pants
  • Wool mittens w/windproof cover
  • Scarf
  • Spare wool hat and gloves
  • Having a warm down jacket available is essential for long periods of work at the same field site or just hanging out
  • on deck on R/V Lance. Make sure to bring a proper backpack! We recommend that you purchase your own gear
  • prior to travel or in Longyearbyen.

AMASE 08 Personal Gear (II)

Following established procedure when hunting

for extraterrestrial life - all AMASE crew

members are required to bring proper "Men in

Black" attire as part of the field equipment.

This means a black suite, black shoes and dark

sunglasses combined with a white shirt and

black tie (or simply a black dress for the ladies).

MiB photo sessions in extreme environments

is a longstanding AMASE tradition.

NOTE: Sneakers, mountain boots (including

covered in foil), ties made of black tape or with

colors/patterns and other unsuitable items do

not pass!
