Glaciology in the St. Elias Mountains of Yukon, Canada: science, logistics and surprises
Dr. Gwenn Flowers

2018-04-11
The St. Elias Mountains of Yukon, Canada, are home to vast icefields, surging glaciers and some of the highest peaks in North America. Since 2006, Gwenn and her research group at Simon Fraser University have been carrying out glaciological field work in this area to investigate surface mass and energy balance, glacier response to climate, glacier thermal structure, ice dynamics and outburst floods. This webinar will highlight some of the research results, illustrate the role of funding and logistics in defining the research, and touch on the opportunities and challenges associated with field-based studies in this relatively remote area.
