Interest in the 2019 Juneau Icefield Research Program
Plans are underway for the 2019 Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP) summer field season! JIRP is an eight-week expedition-style academic program for rising high school seniors, undergraduates, post-bacc students, and early-stage graduate students. Participants complete a ski traverse of the Juneau Icefield; design, complete, and present group research projects; and attend a series of lectures, workshops, and field trips that introduce them to glaciology, geophysics, geochemistry, climatology, ecology, and science communication. Academic Director Seth Campbell ([hidden email]) and Program Manager Annie Boucher ([hidden email]) are available to answer any questions.
We will also open faculty applications later this fall. In addition to Seth and Annie, Academic Council members Kiya Riverman ([hidden email]), Brad Markle ([hidden email]), Catharine White ([hidden email]), Lindsey Nicholson ([hidden email]), and Allen Pope ([hidden email]) are available to discuss the recent growth of the JIRP academic curriculum.
