Great to have the research opportunity- hope it goes super-well! But of course also agree on the sad part, would have been fun to have you as part of the team this summer!

Looking forward to seeing what you find though (do you know how many years the ice core covers?).

Vanessa Round (007 on Attackpoint) did her PhD in glaciology in Switzerland (although she's moved to climate modelling now) and would probably have some good contacts in that part of the world.

Such a great opportunity!
There will be more WOCs in your future. :-)

This is so cool. What glacier?

As Peggy said, there will be more WOCs in your future. Have fun!

The conflict with WOC is unfortunate, but congrats on landing such a great summer research opportunity! I really like Peter, both as a scientist and a person, and I think some very cool stuff is going to come out of this project. (I'm actually hoping my group will eventually get to make some measurements on this core to learn more about how melting alters the chemical stratigraphy that we "see" with our radars...) Happy drilling and welcome to glaciology!!

Thank you all! I'll be working up on Mt Waddington. It should be about a 500 year record I believe.

Glad to hear that you like Peter, Riley and crazy that you might be working on the cores!!

Woo! Glad to hear this came through. Congratulations!

Mt. Waddington - any connection to the O Waddingtons?

I wondered the same thing …

Nope! But a fun coincidence :)

As everyone has said, there will be more WOCs but the glaciers won't be around forever.
