Northeast Greenland Caves Project

This is a climate change research project led by Dr. Gina Moseley: the aim is to collect and analyse samples of flowstone from caves in northeast Greenland in order to construct a record of past climate change. The project has support from an august range of bodies but is seeking crowdfunding for the final £67,000. Here is the link to the crowdfunding site: we hope that some of you might feel able to support the project. I expect that every little will help, or, as a boss of mine used to say “Little fish are sweet”.
