Bob and David '14 are headed to Roosevelt Island in the end of October. Stay tuned for more details from the field!


Bob, Thomas, and new lab member Joanna Millstein '17 have just arrived back from Ilulissat, Greenland, where they completed a week of helicoper-supported satellite ground-truthing work for a NASA-supported project known as VESPA. See Bob's coldclimes blog (link below) for details!


David Clemens-Sewall '14 has arrived at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, after spending over 25 hours in four different aircraft. David, who is currently working with Bob Hawley on the Roosevelt Island Climate Evolution (RICE) Project, is currently keeping the world abreast of his goings-on in his blog "Adventures at the Ends of the Earth".

Welcome to Dartmouth College's Glaciology Research Group's homepage! We use remote sensing, geophysical field studies, and quantitative analysis to investigate the form and flow of glaciers and ice sheets, from the large ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland, to smaller glaciers such as the Peyto and Athabasca glaciers in Alberta and British Columbia. Please check out who's involved, and have a look at our research projects and courses. We are always looking for energetic individuals with skills and interest in understanding the dynamics of Earth's cryosphere.
