Research on ice – from the inside and the outside: starting at Germany’s most southern research station in Antarctica, up to the far North of Greenland. Glaciologists from the Alfred-Wegener-Institut, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) are looking for answers to urgent questions like: How does get air into the ice? How does snow reflect the rays of the sun? How are the glaciers changing and what is happening within their massive ice bodies? And finally, what does it feels like to work as a glaciologist?
In this blog AWI glaciologist Olaf Eisen and his team tell their latest science stories. They report from the field, summarise their work in the AWI ice lab and tell what is happening while they are working on their desks.
