Details/Description: During the expedition, measurements will be carried out on Wasa’s building construction, to study how the wooden building has been affected since it was built 30 years ago. Wasa is placed in a “test environment” that stresses the external conditions and can show how well Swedish wooden building technology works in extreme climates. The construction researcher Dag Haugum, active at Linköping University and Luleå University of Technology, is the research leader. He will investigate the building’s condition by measuring moisture (comparison with previous measurements), density, organic growth, penetration of snowdrifts, freezing, long-term mechanical impact of wind loads and energy use. This data can contribute to a broader and more robust experience base and optimise construction for future climates.

Details/Description: CHAQ is an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula with objectives of; collecting data for the research project CHAQ – On Creating Cultural Heritage in Antarctica at historical sites on the Antarctic Peninsula with material remains from the First Swedish Antarctic Expedition 1901-1903; contributing to the conservation work at HSM pertaining to this expedition; creating a virtual reality and 3D presentation of the remains; documentary film about the state of the historical remains and the restoration work in connection to rapid climate change that is taking place in the area; mediation of the history of the expedition at the DNA-IAA museum at Esperanza base; remove a corroding fence in the vicinity of HSM 41 and replace it with four specifically designed poles without a fence; establish a modern weather station to replicate the measurements from the expedition.
