AEG call for field trip guidebooks
The Communications Committee is putting together an inventory of the AEG Field Trip Guidebooks you or your section has in either printed (paper) or electronic format (scanned, on CD, etc). To assist with obtaining this information, we have put together a short online form.

Please enter titles one at a time into the form. A pdf attachment that shows step-by-step instructions on how to enter information is available here. If you have any additional questions, feel free to email the Communications Committee.

Our goal is to potentially offer guidebooks for download to our membership, so the first step is to see which ones exist.

Modeling the instantaneous response of glaciers after ice shelf collapse
British Antarctic Survey via
In February 2002, satellite images from a remote location in Antarctica revealed how an immense volume of floating ice, up to 1 kilometer thick, suddenly collapsed. Over the course of a few weeks, 3,300 kilometers of the Larsen B Ice Shelf shattered and drifted out into the open ocean, leaving behind a large number of neighboring mountain glaciers now exposed to the ocean.
