Dark Snow 2016 Photo Gallery 1
July 6, 2016
My great good fortune thus far in Dark Snow 2016’s Fieldwork has been to bump, literally into Dr. Asa Rennermalm of Rutgers, who has been working as a part of the very important ice melt assessment project helmed by Larry Smith of UCLA.
Asa (pronounced Oh-sa, she’s Swedish) is someone I met and interviewed a year ago in Ilulissat, turns out she is an avid reader of the blog and watcher of these videos. One thing lead to another, and I’ve spent a good part of the first week in the field, camping at the edge of the ice sheet, hiking onto the ice, and in the surrounding area, shooting video and stills, and interviewing Asa and her colleagues.
I’ve finally had enough downtime to start cranking out more posts – but I’m inundated with material. On July 5th, I was lucky enough to fly into the ice camp that Dr. Smith has established for the second year, and the video is amazing – will be trying to get that posted as soon as possible.
