Moving a team from a science base into a deep field camp in Antarctica comes with a mix of high energy and optimism.

Fieldwork in Antarctica adds a whole new layer to the meaning of planning. When heavily field-based projects are planned, it is common for preliminary fieldwork to precede the larger project.
In celebration of Climate Week NYC, here are 10 sample questions from our Climate Challenge game on Kahoot!
For this early part of the season the goal is to tease apart a record of historic precipitation and temperature for this region using isotopes from leaf waxes collected in the lake sediments.
Superheroes are identified by their unique powers and skills, allowing them to see and act in ways that inspire awe in the rest of us. Do scientists have superhero powers?
We awoke to messages that a towering iceberg is threatening the local waterfront settlement of Innaarsuit. There is perhaps a bit of irony in the fact that a massive looming block of ice is a potential threat to the start of our field season.
Snow on Ice is launching into the field with two teams of scientists this summer. The first group, an ‘advance team’ of six women, will focus on lakes where meltwater has collected on the southwestern flank of Greenland bedrock.
On June 2nd, residents in and around New York City can join scientists in exploring our estuary and assessing the diversity of our local waterways.
Scientists are collecting lake sediment, rock, water and plant samples to tease apart linkages between Arctic sea ice, atmospheric uptake, and changes in snowfall on the Greenland Ice Sheet.
