Flying high

MarionArawata.jpgNZ glacier experts are flying round the Alps at the moment shooting glaciers (with cameras and GPS units), conducting their annual ice mass balance audit. TV One sent a reporter to see what Trevor Chinn and Jim Salinger were up to, and on Sunday broadcast a nice little item about the process. Highlights: Jim Salinger rolls out his new favourite measure of volume, the Rangitoto, and Trevor Chinn can be heard commenting “They’ve bloody wrecked a glacier”… Last year’s survey results here, with link to background article.
