2019 pilot fieldwork blog

In 2019, we used separate funding to complete a pilot study which aimed to test the hypothesis that darkening is happening in many places across the Greenland Ice Sheet, not just Site S6. This blog documents the campaign from the initial planning and packing, to the time spent in the field.

We also hosted two journalists - Dan McDougall and Dewald Brand - who subsequently wrote an article about our work that was published in The Guardian.
