Idea Code 17230

At a plateau at 1830 metre altitude, just below Pårtetjåkkås peak, lies the weather station Cederqvist visited and photographed. The weather station was completed in 1914. During 1914-1918 the station was inhabited by two weather observers who performed measurements of the weather around the clock. In 1917, an accident occurred at and one of the observers disappeared in a snowstorm. The accident remains a mystery, and the body was never recovered. Because of the site's inaccessible geographical position, the station and the abandoned measuring instruments remained untouched for over a hundred years. Through this book, Cederqvist examines the gap between chance and the predictable, between the immeasurable and measurable.
