Scholar Highlight for Week Ending October 16, 2015

Dr. Galvao also came to visit me this week. It was so nice to see her. We met up on Tuesday, and she got to meet my research advisor here in Copenhagen. We talked about my progress, and changing the parameters of my research. We finally decided to narrow my research to focusing on just one glacier. I chose to use Engabreen a glacier that’s a part of Svartisen, a collective of glaciers in Norway. I already have mass balance for this glacier from 1963. Dr. Galvao also brought ArcGIS with her on a disc so that I can load it on my computer and get to imputing data. She also advised that I get the Shape files for the area surrounding Engabreen over the years. I have also picked out about seven articles to start reading during my time in Greenland.
