Low-cost European ice camps as science platforms

The success of the GreenICE camp shows that European laboratories, working together, are capable of deploying modestly budgeted ice camps in the Arctic Ocean and accomplishing serious scientific work. This is an inspiration to future research efforts of the same kind, in that in the past an Arctic ice camp was always regarded as a high-budget logistical item, deployed by a national government (Russian, US) to perform a multiplicity of tasks in an inflexible way.
