The sight (and sound) of a giant piece of ice floating on the surface of the water is enough to make you stop and take a deep breath of fresh-cold-air. They are mesmerising! They are majestic! They are beautiful! Pictured here are a collection of photographs of various icebergs we encountered during the EAGRE18 expedition last summer. Photos by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) #geography #geology #climatechange #expedition #exploration #EAGRE18  #science #research #womeninscience @uniinnsbruck @uibk.climate @greenland_caves @petzl_official

Thank-you very much to the Captain Scott Society for inviting Gina to speak about the #EAGRE18 expedition at the AGM. Thank-you once again for the 2018 ‘Spirit of Adventure Award’. This photo shows the Captain Scott Memorial in Cardiff with Scott himself at the front heading south, the iconic hole in the ice and the sails of Terra Nova ship behind. #science #research #womeninpolarscience #polarwomen #climate #greenlandcaves #greenland #caves #expedition #exploration #CaptainScottSociety

Last year on our #EAGRE18 expedition, we visited the village of Ittoqqortoormiit in Scoresbysund, Greenland. Yesterday Gina included this picture in her inaugural lecture. Why? She used it as an example of people already being affected by climate change. Outside the church is a large group of people. They were attending a wedding, but the wedding could not be held inside the church because it is now too unstable as the ground has thawed. The wedding was held outside on the sacred church ground.

Although the bulk of Greenland is covered by ice caps inhospitable to most forms of life, Greenland's terrain and waters support a wide variety of plant and animal species. The north eastern part of the country is the world's largest national park. The flora and fauna of Greenland are strongly susceptible to changes associated with climate change. Pictured here lies a deep red moss that covers this part of the southern coast of the Wegener Halvø peninsula, which was our home for four days during our EAGRE18 expedition. Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) #geography #geology #climatechange #expedition #exploration #EAGRE18  #science #research #womeninscience @uniinnsbruck @uibk.climate @greenland_caves @petzl_official

Our most popular photos of 2018! What a great year it was with the #EAGRE18 @toptotopexpedition expedition to the Wegener Halvø peninsula of East Greenland. Thanks to everyone who has supported us on our journey so far. 2019 will see the beginning of the 6-year FWF funded Start project. We are looking forward to this next chapter and wish you all the best with your next chapters too.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // Following a few days prepping the boat in Ólafsfjörður, northern Iceland, the expedition began in earnest. Led by Professor Gina Moseley, our three person team joined the Schwörer family of eight (2 adults + 6 kids (13 yrs - 1 yr)) plus a teacher onboard their floating home. Although the boat mostly ran on auto pilot, at least two people had to maintain a watch monitoring the wind speed/direction and looking out for other ships/icebergs. Gina and I were allocated the 2-4 and 8-10 (am & pm) watches. In the early hours of the morning in freezing cold temperatures, Gina is seen here on watch having finally settled in to sea travel after many hours of sea sickness. @greenland_caves #EAGRE18

Stopping for much-needed rest during #EAGRE18. The views were stunning. The distances were long. The bags were heavy, and it was too hot! #greenland #expedition #explore #exploration #science #geology #research @petzl_official @shonephoto

The distances in Greenland are vast. Covering ground takes a lot longer than expected. On this day, we arrived at the ‘cave’ 6 hours after leaving camp. It only looked a stones throw away from our camp. #eagre18

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // We met up with the Top To Top boat in Ittoqqortoormiit and because of the impending weather we immediately set sail for Iceland. We sailed directly east to begin with, to get beyond the ice in the East Greenland current as soon as possible, and then turned south. Whilst carrying out our watches, it gave us a time to reflect on what we had seen and what might have been had the caves turned out to be caves. Nevermind. #EAGRE18 @Greenland_Caves

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // As our time drew to an end on the Wagener Halvø peninsula, we often sat and looked out across this beautiful fjord at the iceberg. Occasionally we thought we could spot a seal or two sunning themselves on the ice. Because we were meeting back up with the boat, and the weather forecast suggested that we should head south sooner rather than later, we were not able to extend our stay much longer on the peninsula. We had planned to visit another potential cave site, but this would have needed a three-day fly camp, which we no longer had time for. We were, however, confident by now that this peninsula is unlikely to contain the sorts of caves that we were seeking. #EAGRE18 @Greenland_Caves

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // During this summer, we joined a climate research expedition in the Arctic. The aim was to visit the Wegener Halvø peninsula of East Greenland where we had received a tip off that there were caves to be found. Our aim was to expand the vision of the Greenland Caves Project, to find these caves, explore them and collect samples for palaeoclimate research. As part of the project we wished to try and reduce our environmental and climate impact; we teamed up with the Top to Top Global Climate expedition and sailed from Iceland to Greenland and back. It was an amazing experience with breathtaking views the whole time (not that I was always able to appreciate them when being sick off the back of the boat). Pictured here we headed south to our next potential cave site, which looked more promising on the photographs than the ones the day before. We hiked across snow fields on steep ground and finally reached the bottom of the cliff at 6:30pm after a long day. We were faced with a steep and loose scree slope and a final climb to the cave, which Chris made an attempt on whilst I flew the drone. Whilst these were definitely more cave-like than those from yesterday, they turned out to be large shelters without any sedimentary deposits. Another tiring and disappointing day. #EAGRE18 @greenland_caves

Photo by Robbie Shone @Shonephoto | Last summer, we joined a climate research expedition in the Arctic. The aim was to visit the Wegener Halvø peninsula of East Greenland where we had received a tip off that there were caves to be found. On the August 10th, over two weeks after leaving home, we finally set out in search of our first caves. A number of potential cave sites had been shown to us by a geologist, though their specific locations were unknown. Our first targets were north on the peninsula from our base camp. We established a route on our topographic maps that enabled us to slowly gain height towards the cave, which we knew were high above the fjord. For most of the day, we found ourselves following musk ox tracks in the snow. Seen here we were close to our target and after several hours of walking we traversed the ledge towards the cave, a deep snow-filled gully prevented us from making the final steps. Luckily we had the drone with us and this revealed that the cave was only a shallow alcove. Disappointment all around, but this is not uncommon in cave exploration. #EAGRE18 @greenland_caves
