Summit Station Science (summer 2023)
NY Air Guardsmen Move Cargo, Fuel, People to Greenland Camp
Science at the Summit – the research centre high on Greenland’s ice sheet
At the apex of the Greenland ice sheet, a community of 41 scientists and support staff carry out cutting-edge research into everything from climate change to particle physics
For two hours, I had been sitting amid heavy cargo inside the hot, cavernous fuselage of a ski-equipped New York National Air Guard Hercules C-130. Other than the pilots, the aircraft carried just me, two loadmasters and Mike Jayred, a highly reputed ice-coring engineer who has spent the past two decades extracting some of the oldest and most precious climate records ever retrieved from Greenland and Antarctica. Any attempts at conversation were drowned out by the pressurisation, the roar of the propellor engines and our fluorescent earplugs.

Future of Greenland Ice Sheet Science (FOGSS) Workshop: April 6-8, 2022
We are pleased to invite you to participate in a collaborative workshop targeted at identifying the Future of Greenland Ice Sheet Science. Although this workshop is organized at the behest of U.S.-based funding agencies, we invite the perspectives and participation of our international colleagues as well.
The Future of Greenland Ice Sheet Science (FOGSS) workshop descends from the successful legacies of the previous NASA PARCA and NSF GEOSummit workshop. The FOGSS workshop will consist of collaborative priority-setting discussions as well as brief presentations focused on increasing the impact of existing and proposed research activities in Greenland.
We have launched a website containing further information regarding the structure and orientation of this workshop, which is scheduled over Zoom for three hrs per day, April 6-8.

REMINDER: get your mini-talks and registration in for the Greenland Fieldwork Science Workshop
This is just a quick reminder of the workshop on Greenland Fieldwork scheduled for next week, Sept 14 and Sept 16 from 12:30-16:30 US Eastern Time.
Due to a glitch in the registration form, if you are planning on attending, please send RSVP email@example.com for meeting and connection details, and send along any mini-talks you have. Happy to answer any questions. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Dear Greenland Research Community,
Greenland Fieldwork Science Workshop, Sept 14/16, 2021
Dear Greenland Research Community,
We invite you to a virtual meeting to discuss future goals for NASA and NSF funded field projects working on the Greenland Ice Sheet, Sept 14 and Sept 16, 2021, 12:30-16:30 eastern. Our goal is to discuss synergies for current and future field programs working on the ice sheet. This meeting is designed to be a combination of what in the past has been the GEOSummit workshop discussing future science goals at NSF's Summit Station, Greenland and a mini, field-centric version of NASA's PARCA meeting. We envision a return to PARCA's roots, devoted to discussing the science and results coming out of the various field campaigns supported by NASA and NSF and possible synergies between deploying projects. We are soliciting 5 min lightning talks (two slides max!) focused on fieldwork and field data that include 1) your most recent, exciting Greenland results you want to share and 2) future plans and logistics needs. We welcome any follow-on to recent traverse and field safety workshops and discussions.
