The past few days have been quite busy with research on the glacier. Photographers and cinematographers from GlacierWorks arrived earlier in the week and we’ve had a great time explaining our work, as well as including locals and students in the research. From chopping ice holes, to sampling the bottom of the lake with a dredge, to recovering instruments, to mapping out the terrain using a field spectrometer, we’ve gathered a lot of interesting information. Today’s cool discoveries include finding a small ice cave and a beautiful nearly intact garnet (gemstone) embedded in a rock. Finding something like this is quite rare. Tomorrow, we move to our next field site, further up the glacier. It has been getting quite cold here. In fact, we got some snow flurries today!
