Snow and sampling tools are packed and ready to help assess 2015-16 El Niño event impact to date at Quelccaya. We will be at the glacier until early May, playing in the snow and recovering frozen samples, Also planned are retrieval of AWS measurements, servicing the station, and doing a geodetic mass balance survey. Some exciting ecology research is part of the program; stay tuned for further details!
