Members of the MAGPIE (Magnetotelluric Analysis for Greenland and Postglacial Isostatic Evolution) project at Dept. of Geosciences & CEED have spent much of June on the ice sheet of Greenland. Now nearing its completion, the campaign was a great success and has been documented day-by-day on the MAGPIE blog.
