A Portrait of a Research Project Daily from Saturday, 13 October 2018 until Sunday, 28 October 2018 10:00 AM

Art meets science in a stunning photography exhibition of Alex Ingle's work documenting UK scientists at work on glaciers in Greenland. Using a unique combination of geomorphology, marine biology and the archaeology of old Norse settlements they are attempting to answer questions about how the ice sheet on Greenland has fluctuated in the past - ultimately helping us understand what it will do in the future.

Edinburgh-based photographer and filmmaker Alex Ingle travelled with a team of scientists from the CALVE project to Greenland to study its spectacular glaciers. Join us for a stunning exhibition of his work showing the dramatic landscapes and reality of working at the cutting edge of climate change.

CALVE (Calving Glaciers: Long-Term Validation and Evidence) project aims to improve our knowledge of how the rate of iceberg production relates to climate change using archaeology, glaciology and marine biology. The exhibition will showcase photos and video footage captured by Alex during this expedition and the launch on October 13th will be accompanied by our ‘Meet the Glaciologist’ event with scientists from the CALVE project as well as PHD students from the University of Edinburgh.
