The website Adventures in Climate Change is running all of the blog entries about a team of scientists from the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute who are on an expedition in the Tupungatito Glacier, located in a volcanic crater at an elevation of 19,000 feet in the Andes Mountains in Chile. Paul Mayewski, director of the Climate Change Institute and Bjorn Grigholm, a Ph.D. student in Earth Science at UMaine, have been sending back blog entries via satellite phone from the field. The researchers are drilling ice cores, which they will bring back to UMaine. Adventures in Climate Change, which is a recommended blog on the Discovery Channel website, highlights the work being done by scientists, activists and anyone involved in climate change research as knowledge gatherers, observers or innovators.
