Here’s the pitch: I plan to travel to southeast Alaska to be part of an expedition; we will travel across the Juneau icefield for scientific purposes from June 21st to August 16th 2013. The expedition is organized by the Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP), the longest continuous research study of a glacial system in the Western Hemisphere. The main mission is to contribute to understand the dynamics of glacier systems as they relate to climate by collecting data on the icefield.
This expedition is the opportunity of a lifetime for a young glaciologist, in terms of crucial technical skills learning, contact with seasoned scientists and close contact to glaciers –the subject I’ve been studying via satellite images.
To get there, I NEED YOU!
Funding is still needed (all the details will be available on a crowd-funding webpage launched in a couple days). By contributing to this project you’ll be in a sweet spot to hear a little about the story of one of the great frozen places on earth AND I offer sweet perks
Feel free to ask questions!
