The summer of 2012 was one of the most extreme melt seasons in Greenland on record. We arrived in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland during peak melt season. Extreme high flows in the Watson River washed out the only bridge that spans the river and connects the town with its water source, trash dump and aviation communication towers.
We spent the next six weeks in Greenland working both on the ice sheet and in large proglacial rivers near the ice sheet terminus. Below, please find an array of photos taken during the remainder of this field campaign.
