During their explorations and tours of the MEMORIA NORWAY project, SpringerParker will update the Logbook on a regular basis. It documents their route and events in forms of on location photos and descriptions sent directly via the mobile phone to this website. Clicking at the geographical data to the left of the entries lets you follow their route on the map.

VLF Recording

This is the last night for us to do sound recordings of the polar lights. We are trying different techniques how we can boost the signal much more and how we are able to go deeper into the sound phenomenon of the night sky illumination.

Setting sun

Same as before, also one of our favorites spot, the setting sun illuminates the highest peaks on the opposite side of the fjord.

Horizon meets sky

View over the frozen Porsanger Fjord, when the horizon melts into the sky.

Don't blame it on the lights

And they kept coming back. Last time we checked this night was about 2 o'clock in the night and they were still around. Roughly between 6 and 7 hours, we've never experienced such a long time of activity before. By the way, this was the last time we could use our main camera lens, whose mechanical parts decided to stop working. We don't blame that on the polar lights.


This night the polar lights started quite early by circling above our heads.

Ursa Major

We lay the camera with its back in the snow for this picture. The polar lights are spanning like a magnetic field right above our heads and we are wishing for a lens with a wider angle.


Finally we are fishing again. We are playing around with the kid's toys they left on the kitchen table.

Crystal ball

After the meeting we stopped by our friend Geir's house to discuss the environment of the Porsanger Region, the new National Park and all other stories that we just talked about. So because we don't know, we have to look into the crystal ball for all the things that may happen in the near future ;)

Mona Skanke

After several attempts to meet up with Mona Skanke, the major of Porsanger, this time we are lucky that she is in town. After introducing our project we found a lot to talk about. The Porsanger Municipality is heading for a new future regarding the untouched nature of the region. One of the recent activities are to find out what is going on under the water surface of the fjord and how to turn it back into a refuge.
