Vacation plans are set, I leave on Friday for Glacier National Park. The fine folks at the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center are letting me help out on some of their glacier research in the park, where global warming is expected to melt the remaining glaciers in a few decades.
I can say that nineteen years of expensive education have given me no useful skills to help a glaciologist, or any scientist for that matter. That environmental law degree isn't very applicable. Fortunately, in between the times I was getting educated, my six summers as a bum in Alaska gave me some glacier travel experience, so hopefully I won't be completely useless.
I expect to get one or two more posts in, and then it'll be quiet here for a while.
key: science, global warming
