We travelled to Switzerland with seven graduate students for the 15th Swiss Alps Glacier Field Course.
The course has been organized every year since 2006, but we were not able to do it for the last two years.
I am so happy to see our students enjoy beautiful mountains and glaciers in the Alps.
Glciers are affected by extremly hot summer in 2022, as well as very small amount of snow fall in the last winter.
I hope the experience in Switzeralnd helps the students to recognize the rapid changing climate and environment.
