Remote camp

In starkly beautiful surroundings, MIT-WHOI joint program students Maya Bhatia (center) and Alison Criscitiello (left), along with Matthew Evans (a scientist at Wheaton College) camped on the Greenland coast for two weeks in summer 2008. Motoring out into the fjord very four hours (weather permitting) the three monitored the water for signs of red dye. On an expedition led by WHOI glaciologist Sarah Das, scientists poured the harmless dye into a crack atop the Greenland ice sheet, hoping to determine the routing of water beneath the ice to the coast.
