In March 1992, the Neumayer II Station opened only 10 km from the original site. The station has steadily expanded ever since and now includes monitoring of atmospheric ozone.

After 17 years of operation, the Neumayer II Station has already sunk 14 m deep into the ice. So the construction of a new station was necessary.
