U.S. Scientific Traverses on the Greenland Ice Sheet: a Planning Workshop

The U.S. Ice Drilling Program and the Summit Science Coordination Office are co-sponsoring a U.S. science community planning workshop on June 11, 2021, to identify and articulate U.S. science community interests for long-term planning of potential scientific traverses on the Greenland Ice Sheet. The workshop is designed to identify the driving scientific questions that require access to interior areas of the Greenland Ice Sheet and would benefit from traverse approaches for the coming decade and beyond. The outcome from the workshop is a set of white papers that will help identify technological and logistical requirements that will be needed to support the science. There is no registration fee; however, registration is required. The registration deadline is June 6, 2021. For complete details, visit the workshop's webpage.
