Field work blog from NW Greenland

EMsled blog no. 1

ICE-ARC PI Jeremy Wilkinson and Francois¬†Guerraz from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) are working with colleagues from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) and the Greenland Climate Research Centre (GCRC) and local Inuit in North West Greenland. They’re developing an instrument that will eventually be given to hunters to put on their sleds and will measure sea-ice thickness. Between building and testing, they’re writing a blog so we can get updates on their progress as they go.

Ready to go!

BAS engineers Neil Cobbett and Francois Guerraz finish packing up the boxes to head of to Greenland. Their journey will be from London to Copenhagen, then to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland (the only town with a big enough runway), then on up via Ilulissat to Qaanaaq.
