Dr. Karen Cameron is a scientist with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, and participated in this year’s Dark Snow Project encampment on the Greenland ice.

Dr. Cameron’s descriptions of┬áthe evolving melt season, together with Sara Penrhyn Jone’s stunning videos, are evocative of what scientists experience in the course of this research.

Cameron spent 47 days on the ice this summer, and was airlifted out with her team, on the same chopper that brought me in.

I’ll be presenting short clips of her observations over coming months.
