Ice Stories correspondent Kelly Carroll reports from a storm at Tango 1 Camp, a remote camp deep in the Transantarctic Mountains. In this audio dispatch, correspondent Jack Walter describes his first week at the team's field camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Hear about their research on lakes under the glaciers and get a slice of life as a remote polar scientist. Climate researcher Billy D'Andrea and colleagues explore the remote "back lakes" of Greenland. For two days Summit Camp, Greenland experienced strong winds and blowing snow, making work, and even walking around camp, difficult. Join us as we celebrate the beginning of summer in the Arctic and the long, cold winter in Antarctica. We'll connect live to two polar field sites: Summit Camp atop Greenland's vast ice sheet, where the sun will be shining 24 hours a day, and the South Pole Research Station, now in the middle of 6 months of darkness.
Join us for this special Webcast from Summit Camp, which sits atop nearly 2 miles (about 3200 m) of ice on the Greenland ice cap. We'll talk with Zoe Courville, an Ice Stories blogger and snow researcher from the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab, about life on top of an ice sheet. She'll also discuss her research into how snow becomes glaciers. Glaciologist and Ice Stories correspondent Nadine Quintana Krupinski gives us a brief tour of her deep field camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
