Tunsbergdalsbreen 2012 Expedition seeking team members - perfect for Undergraduate and Masters students
Applications are now open for the 2012 Tunsbergdalsbreen expedition. Email [hidden email] for more information and an application pack. The closing date is January 12th 2012.
The Tunsbergdalsbreen project is a ongoing study to survey the health of the Tunsberg glacier - the biggest (18km) outlet glacier of the Jostedal icecap in Western Norway. A great introductory expedition for Undergraduate and Masters students who have an interest in glaciology, geomorphology and geosciences in general or for people who love the outdoors and want a challenge! Training is included in the expedition so no experience is necessary. The field work includes measuring the velocity, volume and snout position of the lower section of the glacier, and the geomorphology of the proglacial area. It is possible to use the site for dissertation data collection while on the expedition - just get in touch to discuss this.
The project is a joint project between Brathay Exploration Group, the Field Studies Council, Newcastle University and the Norwegian Glacier museum.
