Crevasse Webinar Series

About the series

In June 2021, NSF sponsored the Crevasse Risk Management and Safety Workshop. In continuing the conversations of this workshop, the NSF Office of Polar Programs is hosting a four-part webinar series on using technology to increase the ability to detect crevasses, an essential need while doing fieldwork in rapidly changing, ice-laden landscapes.

There is no need to register in advance. Simply follow the link listed below.
