Today we paid a short visit to the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles, also know as drones) airfield before we went to the station. Very interesting, and I think there will be some report from the UAV crew here soon. The UAV can carry some small, light-weighted instruments for absorption measurements, size distribution, and impactor samplers.

At the station, most of the instruments are working, the FINCH (Fast Ice Nucleation Chamber) is almost up and running, some last flow check and tests are still necessary. But we expect first IN measurements with FINCH for tomorrow. No power failures anymore, but still from time to time the voltage on one phase is too high, which is a problem for the chiller in the HINC (horizontal ice nucleus chamber) of ETH. But they found a workaround.
