UDaily: UD researchers deploy weather station on Petermann Glacier in Greenland

University of Delaware oceanographer Andreas Muenchow and doctoral student Peter Washam are part of an international research team that successfully drilled through a floating Greenland glacier this week and deployed the first UD ocean sensors underneath. 

The UD researchers are part of a U.S.-Swedish expedition working to document changes in the grounded Petermann Glacier, which connects the great Greenland ice sheet directly with the ocean.
