Join snow and ice researcher Mary Albert, from the Army's Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, and climate change and ice core expert Jeff Severinghaus from Scripps, students, drillers and a 9th grade Earth science teacher from Idaho - Jo Dodds - as they fly from Scotia, NY, to Greenland aboard a NY Air National Guard LC-130. It's one of the most unusual and exciting ways to travel... and many of the researchers kept working all the way. (The rest were listening to or playing games on their iPods!) This is truly "cool" science.
