[Polarpol] Wegener diaries available online
Wegener's writings offer first-hand impressions of Greenland's extreme environments, the dynamics of its ice sheet, and the challenges of collecting scientific data under extreme conditions. He reflects on science and technology, relationships with his colleagues, his professional aspirations for a future expedition to the south pole, and even his frustrations:
"But one thing is certain: I will not go on another expedition like this voluntarily. I'm too old for this, even if I'm only 31."
The Environment & Society Portal team edited and produced the exhibition; the Deutsches Museum, which holds the original diaries, provided their digitization. The RCC editorial team translated and copyedited the selections."
