Title: Live from the Greenland Ice Cap
Description: Join us for this special Webcast from Summit Camp, which sits atop nearly 2 miles (about 3200 m) of ice on the Greenland ice cap. We'll talk with Zoe Courville, an Ice Stories blogger and snow researcher from the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab, about life on top of an ice sheet. She'll also discuss her research into how snow becomes glaciers.
