Interview with glaciologist Ian Joughin (Applied Physics Lab, University of Washington) atop the Greenland Ice Sheet. From atop the Greenland Ice Sheet, Kristin Poinar, a graduate student at the University of Washington, describes observing first-hand the sudden rapid draining of a huge glacial lake. From atop the Greenland Ice Sheet, Chris Linder, a photographer from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, describes observing first-hand the sudden rapid draining of a huge glacial lake. On his teams first day out in the field near Kangerlussuaq, geomorphologist Paul Bierman of the University of Vermont explains what kind of rocks they look for to help determine the last time Greenland was free of ice. Greenland, shots taken while flying in a helicopter from the Ilulissat Airport out over the Greenland ice sheet to the remote field camp of researcher Sarah Das. Working in the snow all day takes a certain type of skill set: digging skills, drilling skills, and snowmobile driving skills. It also helps to love what you do. Greenland Ice Sheet shots of melting Glaciologist and Ice Stories correspondent Nadine Quintana Krupinski gives us a brief tour of her deep field camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Meet glaciologist Slawek Tulaczyk and his team, who work in the fast-emerging field of ice sheet dynamics. They speak to us just after returning from a month at a remote camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Nadine, a glaciology graduate student from UC Santa Cruz, spent four weeks on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet investigating ice sheets and global climate change.
