to complete work package 5 of SIOS information on field stations,
equipment and infrastructure is needed. For that your help is needed.
Piotr Glowacki - Responsible for WP5 has send out the following letter to
all SIOS partners. If your institution has not filled in the questionnaire
please help to see that it is done.
Dear all SIOS members.
Two weeks have passed since the General Assembly meeting In Longyearbyen. We

only 8 have shown any interest, i.e. have filled out the general information
Alarming is the fact that until now only 3 forms have been submitted

transportation and vessels), out of which none regarding needs &
As you know, the submitted questionnaires are essential for the
establishment of databases and for preparation of the final report on WP5
In my mail dated 8th of September 2011, you have been requested to fill out
and submit the questionnaires by the end of October. Therefore there are
only two weeks left to fulfill the obligation. Let me point out that the
questionnaires do not only concern institutions that owe or operate

infrastructure and transportation needs. Data collected was supposed to be
the base for establishment of a logistics plan and proposals of necessary
investments. Lack of information from you will largely spoil our common
effort to achieve satisfactory outcome of the entire project.
In order to achieve the results that we all expect from the project that we
participate in, I once again request you to fill out and/or ask your
associates to fill out the questionnaires and submit them by the end of
The questionnaires are available at:
