Carving a Scientific Niche

Carving a Scientific Niche

Scientists walk along the edge of a large canyon carved by meltwater stream flow across the surface of the Greenland ice sheet. The lines along the canyon wall show the stratigraphic layers of ice and snow laid down over the decades. WHOI glaciologist Sarah Das, geophysicist Mark Behn, and other colleagues from WHOI and the University of Washington will travel to Greenland this summer for the third year of an ongoing study of how Greenland's ice is melting and moving.
