3.  Methods

On the basis of the hearing, a working group / special expert group was appointed
to continue work on the case. The group consisted of Professor Roald Berg, Dr. art.
Bjørg Evjen, rear admiral Kjell Prytz, meteorologist Helge Tangen, museum director
Kjell Lutnes, journalist Knut Hoff and navigator Per Arvid Pettersen.
Lutnes, Hoff
and Pettersen have acted as the group’s executive committee and secretariat.

Five working meetings have been held during the period between October 2002 and
June 2003. Tasks to be implemented between meetings have been divided among
the members of the group.
 

Bjørg Evjen has carried out a series of interviews with a view to clarifying the new
information about events in 1928 that appeared in the newspapers Tromsø and
Nordlys in autumn 2002.

Some members of the working group have been in Troms county to search for
objects and gather the testimonies of witnesses.
 
The Meteorological Institute, North Norwegian Rescue Co-ordination Centre and the
Institute of Marine research in Bergen, have been consulted with regard to weather
conditions between Norway and Svalbard in the summer of 1928, and the
predominant ocean currents in the same sea areas.
