Tunsbergdalsbreen 2013 Expedition seeking team members - perfect for Undergraduate and Masters students

norway
*Applications are now open for the 2013 Tunsbergdalsbreen Expedition.  
Email [hidden email] for more information and an  
application pack. The closing date is January 15th 2013.*

The Tunsbergdalsbreen Expedition is a ongoing study to survey the  
health of the Tunsberg glacier - the biggest (18km) outlet glacier of  
the Jostedal icecap in Western Norway. It is 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 fieldwork 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 venture between Brathay Exploration Group, the  
Field Studies Council, Newcastle University and the Norwegian Glacier  
museum.
