What actually does ‘doing science’ mean for the team?
Our expedition is dedicated to scientific research and our scientific advisor Charly Braungardt has explained the background to the scientific projects we are supporting in a number of blog posts and on our website.
And if you are following our social media, you will have picked up the phrase ‘doing science’ by various team members in the expedition updates.
This video explains how ‘team science’ Cat Cameron and Martin Densham take samples for the analysis of metal concentrations in the snow pack. Some metals are important nutrients to the food web in the ocean and therefore play an important role in climate regulation.
