Exploring Unknown Glaciers and Mountains in Patagonia
Explore the largely unknown Hoste Island, conducting an East-West traverse of the Cloue Icefield.
Attempt the unclimbed major peaks, producing a freely-available high-quality map of the region on our return. It will also include unprecedented bathymetry measurements of the fiords and the heritage related to historical expeditions.
Measure glacier front positions through the use of GPS and Photogrametry in order to improve the glacier inventories of the region.
Divulge the glaciology and the glaciers of the region, in the context of current global change and warming climate.
