Thank you to the Kronen Zeitung for publishing an article on our research in Greenland and the upcoming FWF Start grant.

Thanks #qra2019 for a great symposium and for the invite to talk about cryogenic cave calcites. Thanjs Christine Lane for the picture.

Greenland Caves Project

Today marks the beginning of the 6-year 1.2 million euro funded FWF Start project. We thank everyone who has supported us on this journey so far, without you we certainly wouldn't be where we are today. The next six years will be challenging but exciting, and we are very much looking forward to unravelling the climate history of Northeast Greenland.

If you would like to find out more about the project, please visit our website greenlandcavesproject.com

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.

Two members of the scientific team collect modern dripwater samples, which will be analyzed for chemistry, and used to help interpret the records of the past. In April 2018, I joined a team of scientists working in Gunung Mulu National Park, on the Malaysian island of Borneo. The team, led by Dr. Nele Meckler from the University of Bergen, Norway are working to improve our understanding of tropical climate change over the last 500,000 years. Over the next two weeks I will share pictures from this amazing assignment.

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

A new book has been published featuring a creative essay by Gina on our expedition in 2015 to the caves of Greenland. The book is a collection of many essays all on geological themes. To order a copy visit Little Toller Books

Work continues on the Ancient Caves IMAX film.

We have just returned home from a successful shoot on the Yucatán peninsula in Mexico. Accompanying the filming team for the forthcoming Ancient Caves IMAX film, we followed the scientific climate work of Prof. Gina Moseley (@greenland_Caves) and visited several great locations and captured as much awesome footage of the ancient Mayan civilisation, their rituals and traditions above ground including the gorgeous blue Cenotes that exist underground. This recent shoot in Mérida, Mexico concludes all location shooting for the Ancient Caves IMAX film. Now the US team have to cut it all together in the editing suite. Good luck guys. I am really excited to see the final out come at the world premiere, somewhere in the US. #AncientCaves #IMAX #MacFreeFilms #IMAXdome #film #documentary
