PolarTREC teacher Erin Towns is heading to Ilulissat, a coastal town in western Greenland, to work with a team of researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution on the Greenland Subglacial Tremor Project. They will be in Greenland to learn more about the Greenland ice sheet, examining how increases in surface runoff will influence ice flow and subsequent loss of water mass from the Greenland ice sheet to the oceans. Ms. Towns will be sharing her experience through journals, photos, videos, and real-time webinars.
