GIGL in the Field, July 2013

First glimpse of Greenland!This summer our tight-knit team of diverse seasoned field glaciologists, a microbiologist, and a photo-journalist are heading to Kalaallit Nunaat (or Greenland) in the latest field expedition planned by Professor Aciego – to embark on five weeks of intense sampling, travel and exploration of some of Greenland’s receding (and some advancing) glaciers located in Narsarsuaq, Iluissat, Kangerlussuaq, Nuuk and Kulusuk.
