The Weekend Wonk: Probing the Greenland Caves

May 7, 2016

Northeast Greenland Caves Project:

During the summer of 2015, a highly-motivated 5-person team visited the Arctic Circle to explore, survey, photograph, and sample caves of Northeast Greenland for the purpose of climate-change research. This much-needed record of past climate change will be the first of its type from caves of Greenland, and will contribute significantly to our understanding of long-term climate change in Greenland and the Arctic by covering a time period that is out-of-range of the Greenland ice cores.
