aims to: 


  • 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.
