Our field experiments, to be elaborated further in future posts, include documenting the importance of dust, black carbon, and microbes in snow and ice melt.
The field team so far includes:
- Drs. Marek Stibal video; Karen Cameron; and Prof. Jason Box of Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS)
- Prof. Martyn Tranter; University of Bristol in England
- Drs. Arwyn Edward; Tristram Irvine-Fynn, a video; Alun Hubbard, a video of the University of Aberystwyth in Wales
- Dr. Joseph Cook of the University of Derby in England
- Alia Khan, blog of the University of Boulder, CO, USA
- media specialist Peter Sinclair, a video
- media specialist Dr. Sara Jones, a video
It is by pooling resources among these groups that we can do more/better science and get the science message out.
