The Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP) invites researchers to join them for the Summer 2020 field season and beyond. They facilitate research in the areas of Glaciology, Atmospheric Science, Polar Ecology, Biogeochemistry, Geomorphology, Geology, Tectonics, and Polar Engineering, and can provide logistical and infrastructure support for your projects and provide opportunities for broader impacts, outreach, and interdisciplinary collaboration.

River flows originating in High Mountain Asia (HMA) - i.e. the Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau - support the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people. How these river flows might evolve in a warming climate depends in large part on changes in snowfall and snow processes. As well as providing a large fraction of river flows in vital basins, HMA snowpacks strongly influence regional climate through land-atmosphere feedbacks. While an increasing number of studies have focused on Himalayan glaciers, little is known about the region’s snow, how it varies in space and time, and how it might change in the future.

Are you a ‘mountain person’ committed to the well-being of Canada’s mountain peoples and places? Are you a seasoned leader with not-for-profit governance experience? Are you looking for an opportunity to bring your passion and energy to grow partnerships, knowledge, and research in service of Canada’s diverse mountain regions? If so, the Canadian Mountain Network wants to hear from you.

This funded research project will deliver quantitative understanding of the dynamics of the transition from debris-covered glacier to rock glacier, what geophysical and climatic factors influence it, and how the glacier’s contribution to the downstream water supply evolves. The outputs of this project will be used to help deliver information on these hidden ice and water resources for local knowledge networks and improve climate resilience for remote and vulnerable communities.
