Today PROTEUS succeeded in reaching twice the Blomstrandbreen glacier face, collecting throughout its path both water samples and marine environmental parameters. At the same time, the Otto drone on the one hand helped PROTEUS to identify the best route to reach the glacier and on the other hand it acquired atmospheric data. Thanks to the data collected from the two vehicles the researchers will be able to characterize for the first time the important phenomena occurring in the entire vertical column near the front of the glacier.
