About This Project

Climate change is accelerating Greenland ice sheet melt. Microbes which darken the ice surface and simultaneously cycle carbon and nitrogen are thought to be important drivers of this process. However, we do not currently understand the magnitude of ice-surface microbial processes, nor their response to climatic changes. We plan to travel to Greenland for one month to further understand how ice-surface microbes act as amplifiers of climate change.
