Last month I was lucky enough to be invited back to The University Centre in Svalbard (more commonly known by its acronym UNIS) to teach the first week of the Masters course in Glaciology (AG-325). Its a great place to teach and study, and also February is a wonderful time to visit as the light is excellent. Here is a photo of 5 scooters coming home to the warm lights of Longyearbyen.
The deadline for applications for autumn courses is the 15th April, so check out the list of courses available here: http://www.unis.no/10_STUDIES/1020_Courses/studies_intro.htm
UNIS also hosts some great datasources on local weather and environmental conditions here: http://www.unis.no/20_RESEARCH/2060_Online_Env_Data/weatherstations.htm
