On October 8 and 9, I had the opportunity to attend the fifteenth annual West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) workshop held at the Algonkian Meeting Center in Sterling, Virginia. As an REU student working at CReSIS this past summer, I conducted research on mapping the internal layers of ice sheets using a 12-18 GHz radar. At the workshop, I presented...
CReSIS has implemented a new weekly after-school program called Climate Pathfinders for low-income students at several schools in Lawrence, Topeka and Kansas City. Students learn about issues such as recycling, carbon emission from cars and the effects of leaving a large carbon footprint. The program was started by CReSIS K-12 Outreach Coordinator...
Audrey Fusco, KU graduate student, and RaeLynn Butler, senior at Haskell Indian Nations University, worked on a variety of projects mapping the Jakobshavn Isbrae outlet glacier during the last academic year. The first project was to map the coastal area around Jakobshavn in preparation for the UAV test flight that the students finished last summer...

The surrounding white expanse was far from that of a sandy palm beach, but for some CReSIS members, the ice sheets of Greenland provided a summer retreat.
