Minding the Data for Ice Sheets

ILULISSAT, GREENLAND– In this video, we talk with Jeaime Powell, a graduate student from Elizabeth City State University working on the Polar Grid project. After every twin-otter airplane flight made from Ilulissat to map the Greenland Ice Sheet, Jeaime and his colleagues check over the data to make sure the information is complete and sound. Here he describes his work in Greenland and what they hope to eventually discover from these flights.
