Film team follows Glacier Climate Project expedition

A documentary film team is accompanying the annual North Cascades Glacier Climate Project expedition for 17 days, beginning today! N3C board member Tom Hammond has accompanied this research team and reported back in detail for six consecutive years, but this year the video cameras will be rolling for the first time!
The rapid retreat of the North Cascades glaciers makes the area an ideal laboratory of climate change, attracting climate scientists from around the world.

You can take a look at the project and the filming of the documentary about it by following the web links below.
