Photographs taken during a recent expedition to South Georgia Island in the South Atlantic Ocean – a trip that included several researchers from the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute – are now available for viewing on the expedition website.
The Kuli South Georgia Expedition team members were Climate Change Institute Director Paul Mayewski, UMaine graduate students Bjorn Grigholm and Mariusz Potocki, UMaine postdoctoral researcher Dan Dixon, Chilean researchers Gino Casassa and Marcelo Arevalo, EMT medic Alex Kuli, and freelance journalist Alex George Kuli.
During the trip, the team drilled on Nordenskjold and Fortuna glaciers for what may be the first-ever ice core samples from the island, and also gathered an ice pit sample from the Szielsko Ice Cap. The explorers blogged about their adventures and activities during the expedition.
