“Follow my field trip to Greenland. I will not visit the places that visitors of Greenland usually go to, but stay for about 3 weeks in a camp in the middle of the Greenland ice sheet. I will do this together with an international group of scientists as part of the East GReenland Ice coring Project (EGRIP). The main goal of the EGRIP project is to drill all the way to the bottom and recover the ice for analysis.”
