Grenoble (here) sits at the feet of 3 mountain ranges: Charteuse, Vercors and Belledone. I have a soft spot for Belledone, it is utterly gorgeous and photogenic (see the 3 top pictures). I used to herd sheep and goats there. Vercors is where I used to spend family holidays. The top picture is the view from my friend Pascaline’s garden, whom I visited last December. Chartreuse still is a complete mystery to me.



This is the link you follow to get involved in the Chasing Ice in Alaska Campaign! I have a spot in an expedition in Alaska that starts June 21st 2013. We’ll ski across the Juneau icefield in southeast Alaska to monitor glacier system dynamics. This expedition is great for my career, and also something I’ve been dreaming of doing for years!

Thanks for your support!


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!

It’s been pretty busy lately! Mid January I packed all my belongings in my Subaru and hit the road to Canada. On the way, I spent a week with friends dog mushing in the Ak bush. It probably was the best days in a long time. Then, in South Central Ak, I stayed at friends’, skiing everyday. One day came the time to go for real. I started a 5 days road trip to Canada. The scenery was magnificent, and I mean it. My favorite part was all the way from Girdwood to Whitehorse. I love the feeling that invades you in those wide wild bright places. Whenever I get the chance (with a better computer), I’ll share images of that trip. I’ve been in Edmonton, Alberta for three weeks now.
