A mountaineer’s tale of clashing with climate change and researching rapid glacier retreat from glacier lakes.
Adrian will be talking about an expedition to Alaska that nearly failed as they struggle to get around a glacier lake due to previous rapid retreat of the glacier. He will then explain the subsequent research triggered for his PhD and an expedition to Arctic Scandinavia to conduct fieldwork.
