GREENLAND, ON ICE, FROM THE AIR

These remote, icy reaches on Earth may be far, far, far from your ordinary days, but they play a vital role in the character and future  of your home planet.                                                                     Photo by Michael Studinger/NASA

For the month of April we're back on the road. Or…off, off, off road, as the case may be! Cameras in hand and hands firmly in gloves, I'll be traveling to a remote airstrip in Western Greenland called Kangerlussuaq. Embedded with a top-notch team of NASA researchers, the gig is all about telling stories about how to study changed in global ice cover. To do this, I'm embedded with the research team, flying low altitudes transects over remote reaches of polar ice in a retrofitted P3 Otter airplane like something out of Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Star Trek.

The mission is called IceBridge. For news about the project visit NASA's official social media sites at

For my own, more personal dispatches from the field, you can follow me in Greenland at (assuming my frozen fingers finagle some Wi-Fi)
