Dr. Richard Bates is attempting to keep an online diary of his progress on a two stage expedition to study factors influencing the deterioration of the Greenland Ice cap.
The trip will first make use of the Greenpeace vessel, Arctic Sunrise to attempt to reach and study the Petermann Glacier, beyond the Nares Strait and the North West Passage. The second stage will use the research vessel Gambo to study the marine terminations of glaciers on the west coast of Greenland.
