>> Outline from Prof. Bob Clauer

Hi, Much of my career has been spent in Greenland, first using the large incoherent scatter radar facility to study the ionosphere in the region where the magnetic field lines that first interact with the solar wind enter the Earth, and later, camping on the ice cap to deploy an array of remote magnetometer stations to investigate small scale electrical current systems that propagate across Greenland in response to pressure pulses in the solar wind — like waves on the magnetosphere boundary coupled to the ionosphere via electric current flowing along magnetic field lines. At any rate, the following link is to a documentary of my latest interaction with Greenland — taking a group of students to Greenland for a summer science expedition. I think this is a fantastic documentary and captures the excitement of taking students to the field for the first time. Students from the University of Michigan, University of Albany, and Virginia Tech participated in this adventure. I hope you enjoy this......
